About Me

I quit my job in the technology industry a few months ago and moved out of San Diego, CA to travel & WWOOF for 6 months. I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, philosophy and meeting new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I first heard about Couchsurfing when I was WWOOF'ing (working on an organic farm) in Slovakia. It seems like an awesome way to meet locals and discover the non-touristy side of various places. I love learning about new cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - Anything really. My go-to is deep house with ethnic influence, but I enjoy live music in the folk/alternative genre as well.

Movies - All of the Harry Potters. My favorite genres are historical documentaries and psychological/crime thrillers.

Books - Typically am a non-fiction reader. I study Stoic Philosophy so there's Meditations by Marcus Aurelius & Dialogues and Essays by Seneca. Happiness by Matthieu Ricard is one I read over and over.
