Join Couchsurfing to see Jim’s full profile. It’s free!
Jim, California native through and through, reluctant Silicon Valley professional, and always looking to be more a citizen of the world. I've lived in San Francisco since 2005.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am mostly here as a host as I feel it necessary to pay forward the generosity so many have given to me during my travels.
I believe the best travel experiences and memories are when you have some local connection, and I don't mind making friends the world over.
- rock climbing
- national parks
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite book is Mediations, not really a book; Gattaca is my favorite film; and music is all over the place, lately it's whatever cheesy pop is on and bluegrass.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
With no background in physics or electronics, I built an tube amplifier with self-study and a lot of YouTube videos.
Teach, Learn, Share
I enjoy teaching folks about photography and sharing experiences in a startup.
Countries I’ve Visited
Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Viet Nam
