About Me


Teaching English, continue to try and build my own online business, make new friends, learn new foods, cultures and languages!


I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona but lived in central Texas for a good portion of my life. I am a very open person and I love many things! My current passions (outside of traveling and learning) are cooking and fitness/nutrition. Currently I working as an English Teacher. I am fun and professional! Which means I know when to party and I know when it's time to be serious.
I love to learn new cultures and languages, especially the food!

These days I spend a lot of time with my friends, making new friends, exercising (I like to run), cooking, and studying Chinese.


Live like my role model Timothy Ferriss and join the community of the "New Rich"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Outside of the CS website I met a fellow CSer by chance and was able to surf for my first time. I'ved surfed in the USA, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Couchsurfers are the best people around :)

Music, Movies, and Books

The New York Times Best-Selling Author "Timothy Ferriss" is a life model of mine! His books are like a second bible to me. "Four Hour Work Week, Four Hour Body, Four Hour Chef"

#1 Movie - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
#1 Fictional Book - Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

I love all types of music in many genres! I am truly not too picky. I can play the guitar and piano a little.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was in Austin, Texas (USA) for South By South West (SXSW - A annual festival) 2011, and I decided to into a free venue called Emo's on 6th Street. To my amazement the American Actor/Musician Michael Cera came on stage with his band! After the show I was able to take a picture of him but only got to say Hi. That was my first real life encounter with a famous celebrity.

During my deployment to Afghanistan, 2011-2012, I was given a 2 week vacation, R&R (Rest and Relaxation), in which I took in Seoul, South Korea. This was my first real time visiting another country and I was entirely awestruck through the whole experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am very open and so I would to learn about anyone and everyone's culture, food, experiences, religion, and just general views. I also can share my experiences and American/Hispanic culture, I can teach you English if you need help, and I can teach you how to cook!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Again I can share with you my cooking knowledge, and how to learn a langue advice, which are probably the best skills I have.

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
