About Me


Taking my own Eat, Pray, Love Tour anywhere and everywhere I can while attempting to discover what my purpose is. That life long question I'm actively pursuing while attempting to display random acts of kindness daily.


Besides the fact that I'm probably the only person on CS who speaks only one language Haahaaa I was born and raised in San Francisco/Bay Area, California. For the past 17 years I've been living in New York and the last 7 years I've been living in The Bronx--The home of Hip-Hop!

For the past 8 years I've been travelling here and there. I'm a freelance Business Development Executive which basically means God's blessed me with the gift of gab to find new business opportunities for my clients mostly in the technology industry: IT, Software, SaaS etc. I work from "Home" or whatever country I'm in. Definitely not my life's work but very thankful and blessed. My mission and main focus of my energy is--To find out what exactly what God's purpose on earth is while helping others. In the meantime, I'm happily dancing along life with a smile on my face. It's all in the journey right?

At the same time I obviously love travelling, learning about other cultures, I'm a Hip-Hop head, anything having to do with the arts, poetry, photography, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dancing, listening to great music and anything to do with pushing me outside of my comfort zone in order to grow and enrich myself and others at the same time. There's a whole world out there so get out there and explore it!!

"Life is just a moment...You better enjoy it."
-Roy Ayers-


"€œOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

~Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles," 1992 (commonly misattributed to Nelson Mandela, 1994 inauguration speech)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Once I am able...I would love to participate in opening up my home to fellow CS around the globe and in the meantime interact with the amazing locals of cities I'm visiting.


Still a newbie but we all have to start somewhere don't we?
