About Me


LEARN. Everyone has something to learn from everyone.


Hey All! Jeff and Jess here. We were born and raised in California but have lived in many places in the U.S. We like to keep life simple and just enjoy where we live and the people around us. We are active people, whether it be biking, futbol, running, or yoga. Jeff has a bit of a sarcastic side, but it usually only surfaces when I know someone can dish it back at him, for fear of offending people. Jess enjoys eating cuisine from around the world when she isn't busy caring for people as a nurse.

We enjoy discussions about everything, whether it be about economics, politics, history or social justice in our society and around the world. We are easy to get along with and appreciate and respect all people's beliefs, even if they are in conflict with our own.


We love talking to people and hearing about their experiences in life and learning from them. We love exchanging ideas and thinking about the world at large. We believe everyone has something unique and worthwhile to share, no matter what their background. Everyone has something to learn from everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
