About Me

CURRENT MISSION

We're going to live like we're telling the best story in the whole world.

ABOUT ME

After discovering CouchSurfing while living abroad, I've gotten more involved with it's various social communities. Now that I'm back in the DFW area, my roommates and I host people fairly regularly.

Having grown up in the metroplex and surrounding areas, we know a lot of the touristy things to do as well as some of the more obscure attractions or private events.

The whole CouchSurfing concept is brilliant and I look forward to meeting as many new people as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My roommates and I like to live vicariously through the travels of others, so we host when we can. I also utilize CouchSurfing to find couches to crash, social groups and activities when I'm traveling.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed with a family in Bangalore, India and was involved with the CS Group of Cebu, Philippines when I lived there. Hosted over a dozen surfers here in Texas as well as meet some people to hang out with while I am in Australia in June or traveling with work.

Interests

There's usually always something interesting going on in the area, but also up for a chill night at home hanging out with new people and old friends.

Hobbies include photography, wine making, leather art and traveling.

Music, Movies & Books

Books - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, The Alchemist, Stilllife With Woodpecker

Movies - Moulin Rouge, True Romance, Big Fish, Love Actually, The Brothers Bloom, Passing Strange, The Muppets

Music - 90's Alt Rock, Trip Hop, Slam Poetry, 80's Novelty Music... and a not so secret obsession with cover songs and mash-ups.
