About Me


laugh a lot, live happy, travel and share.


The world is a wonderful place to explore with so much to learn about how we can be helpful to others. I have a whimsical spirit and I want to make the world a smaller place for everyone.


life is a just a twinkle in eternity, but we can learn, love and share so much. my goal is to make the best of what i've been given, and share everything i've got. also, alan watts... 'nuff said 😜

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Whatever is necessary 😜 even if you're just in town and staying with other cs-ers, let me know, i'll be glad to meet for a coffee or food and tell you more about the culture and history of silicon valley! san francisco to san jose, nowhere is far for me.


i've been traveling for most of my life, and the couchsurfing ethos is one I love. My first couchsurfing experience happened before the site was built, and it was on my first pan-Europe backpacking trip. i made many wonderful friends, and subsequently stayed with them during my journey to their hometowns. since then, i've hosted many of them when they visited in australia, singapore and the US. I love this community.

Teach, Learn, Share
