About Me

I'm about to embark on a month long backpacking adventure through Asia and would love to meet new people to share my experience with.

I'm not very good at - nor do I particularly enjoy - describing myself, but here goes nothing.

I'm currently a structural engineer in Los Angeles, CA, USA. I'm pretty easy going and laid back. I also have a weird sense of humor (I think). I love to play and watch basketball and American football.

- Have fun.
- It's all good.
Who says these things? Me (and probably a ton of other people).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm hoping this platform will allow me to meet locals and plant the seeds of new friendships; learn about them, their culture, their way of life, and to share my experiences with them. This is what makes traveling fun and memorable for me.
