Join Couchsurfing to see Karl’s full profile. It’s free!
My girlfriend Rachel and I both grew up in California. We met abroad in South America and have continued traveling and living together for the last 5 years :)
We currently live in Oakland, CA with our Paraguayan dog and 3 wonderful friends.
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 (largely abandoned) website: http://trekhard.com

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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
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.
