About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover Asia and Australia and help CS in the Bay Area.

ABOUT
Raised in England and California I am a very well travel guy, I also lived in Sweden and Germany. I call Berlin my home! because that's where I was living before moving to SF Bay Area. I graduated in International Communication and German. I now am back in the bay area planning my next adventure or find a job. But I do want to go back to Germany for Grad school.

I love to travel, Party, help others, and try new things, such as, Skydiving, surfing, BMX, I been to a many places in the world where I have learned something new about myself and others. Traveling is everything to me because It changes you in one way or another, and you see the world in a different way, where its not just about you or how much money you have but about being kind and helping and learning from different cultures and people.

I also like to learn languages, I want to learn as many as I can, I like meeting likeminded people from all over the world. I am a open minded person, I respect others beliefs , ideas and orientations and I like the same in return. I like to have fun, and i am always up to doing pretty much anything cool and crazy.

I think reading what others think about me, its important, so feel free to read and check what my friends and hosts have to say.

PHILOSOPHY

well life is a journey and there are many decisions that you have to make and some times you make the wrong ones, but you learn from them, and that's what matters, i am a person that loves the world and likes people no matter what, my motto is "life is short play naked" meaning; we need to make the best out of everyday like it was your last one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think CS is an amazing site, I met the most amazing people and made friends and went places that I never thought possible. I am super excited for my next trips, and i can't wait to meet and see new lands and cultures. I try to help people who don't have a COUCH in the BAY AREA and feel free to CONTACT ME if you need an EMERGENCY COUCH.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

SO far I been a member of CS for 10 years and I have had so many great experiences. Every time I travel I use Couchsurfing and I talk to people about it if they don't know, but most do. I have made friends and even spend Christmas with CS people for 2010 , 2012 and 2015. I am glad to be part of such awesome community and to be able to share a little of my self to others weather that be with making you laugh or sharing experiences or just help travelers.

Interests

I love languages my goal is to learn 10 languages. I am learning Swedish and Dutch right now. I learned most of the languages I know online, also living in that country helped me a lot, also online friends. and also improving my Italian. But the language i love the most is Portuguese, i am pretty much fluent on it, i love Brazil. why? .. great friendly people that rise about their problems, the language is amazing and beautiful, and the culture is to die for ;) . My other interest include Making Youtube videos and TRAVELING!!!! I travel when ever I can, or when i don't have school.
I know German, Italian, Portuguese pretty fluent!
