About Me


To live without regret, to love without attatchment, to laugh without restraint


Born in New York, and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I work as a wellness coach for a leading nutrition company. I enjoy playing music and meeting new people. Ive traveled extensively through the States, India, Europe, New Zealand, and Fiji.


For me, the beauty of life is enough in itself. I try not to create any distance from it by philosophy and speculation about it. I simply try to live my life, directly and immediately, in the hopes that I come out of it a more enriched person. Being alive is so captivating and exciting. No creed, code, or catechism could possibly sum it up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfed in many countries and hosted many surfers both in Hawaii and NY.


Only positive experience. Everyone Ive met has been really lovely.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Since I can remember Ive been afraid of heights. Just climbing a a tree, or standing near the edge of a balcony would frighten me deeply. I decided to go skydiving to explore the root of this fear. Surprisingly, despite the obvious terror, there was a silent sense of peace or serenity in the background. I later read a book that advised reader to ask him/herself when upset, "Can I see the peace in this?"
