Join Couchsurfing to see Nate’s full profile. It’s free!
I am currently 20 years old and live in San Francisco, California. I moved here recently in the fall of 2014, and attend the University of San Francisco to study Advertising.
This fall term I will be studying in London at the Boston University satellite campus in South Kensington where I will be taking courses in European Advertising & Marketing.
I love traveling as it has helped me learn about other cultures around the world, and help me better understand my own.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Growing up as a child I had always lived around a variety of cultures from my family hosting exchange students from all parts of the world. From around the time I was born up until now, I've lived with people from Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, South Africa, Argentina, Brazil and more. Having the opportunity to grow up in such a diverse household has been one of the major reasons that have sparked my interest to travel.
I want to join the CS community because it will allow me to experience and see the world from a more personal and local perspective. Whether you are able to show me around during your free time, offer a couch or bed to sleep on, share your life experiences and cultural history, I would greatly appreciate all sort of your warm hospitality!
I love to do both digital and darkroom photography. I started taking pictures around the age of 13 or 14, and do it as both a hobby and for freelance work on the side. In addition, I do graphic design and print layout.
Aside from my creative interests, I love to hike and travel. I still have yet to go on a backpacking trip but it is definitely high on my to do list! Lastly I love to cook and try new types of food from all over the map.
