About Me


Creating a successful startup company


I am Adventurous, Hard Working, and Educated. Just arrived in Boston to found an internet startup after living a year each in Tokyo, Shanghai, and Guadalajara, Mexico. I love learning languages and experiencing a new culture. It's a huge change being back in the states, but I am enjoying the experience so far.


I live my life doing what I love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've had friends that have hosted and been couch surfers, and I always thought it would be a cool experience to participate, but did not really have the opportunity to do so until now.


I'm into extreme sports and getting that adrenaline rush. I've been skydiving, kayaking, racing, surfing, and really not that much else, disappointingly. I would love to try bunjee jumping and hang gliding. Sports are definitely a large part of my life. I work out regularly, play tennis, am a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and love to ski and snowboard.
