Join Couchsurfing to see Jose’s full profile. It’s free!
Improv theatre teacher & performer based in Phoenix and traveling throughout North America and, as of Fall 2015, Europe. Also, freelance writer & event producer. A little bit of the dabbling in the social media, too! LGBTQA friendly. Non-smoker but enjoy heading outside to talk to people who do. Non-drinker but for dietary/health reasons; I'll tell you fun stories about when I used to drink!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet fun people, experience people's culture in their neighborhoods instead of in hotels, and to have adventures & experiences that I wouldn't have without hanging out with locals!
It's only been a few weeks since I first wrote what's above but I've already learned so much about how wonderful the CS community is and met so many great & interesting folks from hosts, friendly interactions with people who couldn't host but were kind & helpful, and in some meetups abroad. I can't wait to meet more CS folks and can't wait to connect with people once I'm back home in Phoenix!
People. Art. Music. Comedy. Theatre. Tech. Coworking. Getting healthier. DIY/DITogether. Storytelling. Collaboration. Keto. Startups. Social media. Science & technology. Wrestling. Fun! (Writing these out makes me sound very generic.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Co-founded a nonprofit, volunteer-run improv theatre in Phoenix, Arizona with friends.
Met my wife kind of via Twitter; she wasn't my wife then, though. It turns out that she had been college roommates with a friend who I had performing with for years. We did a crazy roadtrip across the United States only 6 weeks after we officially started dating and it's been an incredible journey ever since.
Teach, Learn, Share
Our current place is a little too small to try to accommodate guests but I'm always down to help CouchSurfers passing through Phoenix find a place to crash or check out fun stuff around town!
I'm traveling to so many cities this fall & winter (2015) that I've never been to before: Washington DC, Baltimore, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Dublin, Rome, Raykjavik! I'm pretty excited and can't wait to see what I learn!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm an accomplished pet-sitter and a pretty good dude-nanny (references upon request). I can help with any kind of writing in English. I'm not a great cook but I enjoy learning & making fun breakfasts & tasty sandwiches. Good conversation & storytelling when the time is right and totally comfortable with enjoying silence & listening to your stories, too. I enjoy walking & biking and am usually awake before the sun rises, so I can be your human alarm clock if need be.
