My current mission objective is to learn as much from other cultures as possible. I think that America is a little isolated box that I've lived in my whole life, and I think that I could achieve a lot more if I learned to think outside that box.
Well, I'm kind of funny. Don't ever take anything I say to seriously. It's hard to be funny through a computer screen though. I'm told that all my humor is in my face, whatever that means. I get along with people pretty well. Too well. My father always told me that I should find a career with a job description of making friends. He also says that I "bamboozle" people into liking me. I'm very open and easy to talk to, but very bad at expressing my own serious emotions.
Learn by Doing.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Not much at the moment, considering I just registered and now I'm writing this profile. Hosting people and showing visitors around the bay area and San Francisco sounds like a lot of fun though.
Like I said, I'm new at this. But eager to learn!

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: anything satirical, political, motivating, or emotionally moving
Music: Mostly Classic Rock, but anything that tingles the senses and draws you into the song

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
After teaching 3 days a week in an impoverished school in Paraguay with very limited supplies, I started to run out of things to teach. I had to get creative to fill the time. I started teaching not only health and sanitation, but artistics expression. I covered everything from finger painting to basket weaving to yoga and interpretive dance. When the kids started to cheer everytime I walked into the schoolyard, it really pulled my heartstrings.
Teach, Learn, Share
I worked as a pastry chef's assistant and I love to cook, so cooking is a skill i can bring to any table (pun intended). I'm a decent artist, a good singer, a great storyteller, and en absolutely astounding overall entertainer (especially after a glass or two of wine).
