About Me


Dream, beyond dreams.


Nice, easy-going, intellectual guy that just graduated from UC Santa Barbara. At the moment, I live in Los Angeles (Koreatown) and work in Brentwood.

My true passion is writing and am currently half-way done with the novel I have been working on for the past year. Like the moon as it waxes and wanes, I am in a transition period of my life; trying to figure out the next big move.


It all begins with the cultivation of the self.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted couchsurfers while living abroad in Japan and in Santa Barbara, California during the time I attended UCSB. Unfortunately, my life got really busy after I graduated college, but I am back and would love to meet new amazing people.


I have couched surfed in South Asia and Japan and they have all been awesome experiences. I have met really awesome people with a good head on their shoulders and experiences to share.


I love music and anything to do with music.
You can find me dancing at a club near you.
I enjoy good company and enlightening conversations with like minded individuals.
I love sharing my travel stories with those willing to listen and share themselves.
Zumba, yoga, and meditation help keep me sane.
I always have a book in arm's reach.
