About Me


Lifelong Learning


I was born in Dallas, Texas but grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I have spent some time in Albuquerque, Huntington Beach (near Los Angeles), CA and NYC. I went to Arizona State and majored in engineering. Now, I work as a pilot. I am a very friendly, open-minded person. I love to travel and hopefully will travel the entire earth before I die. In addition to travel, I love photography (I've even sold a few of my works). I like to make new friends, meet new people, watch movies, go to sporting and social events. I do not drink alcohol, smoke or use drugs. I love Italian, Asian, Mexican and Middle Eastern food.


My personality is pretty straight forward. I treat people the same way they treat me. I'm usually really nice. I'm different from all the other people out there. I know a lot of guys say that but I can prove it: I have a steady job. I don't drink or smoke. I don't do drugs. I'm not in debt (not even credit card). I like sports but I'm not obsessed by it. I don't act obnoxious and loud in public.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate in CS mostly by going to CS picnic and group events.


Mixed bag.


I hardly have any free time but when I do... I travel, exercise, I'm really into photography (I've even sold a few of my works :p ) I love skiing, swimming, going to the beach. Going to the mall. Checking out movies and ice skating.
