About Me


The U.S is my new home and has been for the last year, and I still absolutely love it. Every weekend is a new adventure and vacation day in California. I plan to see as much of this vast country as possible and meet the equally awesome people that make it so great.


Hi All,
I moved the the U.S over a year ago, having landed my dream job designing aircraft interiors. My experience so far has been incredible, the country has so much to offer than what I was expecting, the weather in California is not too bad either.

In my spare time, I enjoy collecting vintage furniture and posters. A lot of my time is spent making furniture and dreaming about buying a project car/camper.

I also love the outdoors and swimming hiking and cooking and gardening. Travel and meeting people from around the world has always and will always be a big part of my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to host people so they can experience this fantastic part of the world, and show them what makes it great. Im interested in finding future travel partners as well as to meet people who are able to show me their cities too.


I was first introduced to couch surfing in 2011 by a great guy, and the concept just made sense to me and my personality.

I lived with a great colleague and friend Victor temporarily and we hosted some really great people, I now live with another good friend in San Luis Obispo and would like to continue to host people. The people I have met that John and Victor have me hosted, have been nothing but great, genuine people.

I haven't yet stayed with anyone or hosted anyone myself, but I'd like that to change.
