About Me

I'm a mexican-american born and raised in LA and I have been living in SF for the past 8 years. I studied abroad in Paris about 3 years ago and was able to travel to different AMAZING european countries. I want to meet people I can connect with and learn from, as well as build long lasting friendships. I love films, photography, music, art, learning about different cultures, wildlife, and getting out of my comfort zone in order to grow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have couch surfed in the past and had amazing experiences. I was able to have a unique, local and tourist experience while couch surfing.

***Recently I'm going traveling and decided to use couchsurfing but I feel as though it has changed...Not sure if there's just a lot more people or people aren't as willing to host but three years ago I was able to find a decent amount of people that would host and now I haven't had any luck. I would love to be a part of couchsurfing and I want to host people in SF soon, but I'm not having a positive experience on here, so I'll wait and see if this changes.***
