About Me


Be Happy


I was born and raised in California. I'm addicted to traveling and I love languages.

I build websites, and I wish I thought of starting couchsurfing because it's the best. Check out my website:


Do what you want!
Haga lo que quieres!
Mach was du willst!
Faire ce que tu veux!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted some people with a roommate before I got my own CS account, and I am excited to host more people in the future. I also made many friends around Europe in summer 2009, and in Buenos Aires near the end of 2010. I hosted a few times in Tahoe in 2011, and surfed (unofficially) with Peace Volunteers all over South & Central America in 2012.

I also evangelize the project regularly!


I lived in an "International House" in San Diego which had about 100 foreigners as residents. During breaks, when everyone wanted to travel, I hosted as many as 12 of them at a time in my family home near San Francisco.

That's what got me started...


Technology, Gymnastics, Frisbee, Go, Cycling, Rock Climbing, Snowboarding, Film, Languages!

Music, Movies, and Books

Way too much to list for any of the three categories, let alone when combined.

Movies: Kaufman & Coen Brothers
Books: Non-fiction, mostly - Gödel Escher Bach
Music: katchafire, kraak en smaak

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled from Patagonia back home to San Francisco, California without setting foot on an airplane.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have tons of random skills to share. Maybe I can help exchange languages, too.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Time and chats and laughs and hopefully friendship.
