About Me


I want to experience the world!


A Bay Area (California) native, I have lived here almost my entire life. From Lego toys to robots, I've pretty much been on an engineering track of one sort or another since birth. Aside from that I also enjoy a wide array of hobbies from music to cooking and rock climbing.

The best part of traveling the world for me is learning from the people I meet and experiencing all the kinds of food and culture.


Life is what happens while you're making other plans.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well.

Live, laugh, learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've stayed with or hosted Couchsurfers a couple of times. Meeting and sharing experiences with people from completely different backgrounds is the most exciting part of Couchsurfing for me - if you want me to accept your request be sure to tell me specifically why you would like to stay with me!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach and learn! Lately I have been teaching myself guitar and music production, rock climbing, and some programming. I can offer mechanical skills, computer/tech knowledge, and a love of food and culture.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook, talk about culture, and meeting new people - with previous hosts I've done everything from make dinner to bike around their cities or hang out at a bar. Let me know what you like to show your visitors, it's always more fun seeing cities from the eyes of its residents!
