About Me


To live, learn, explore, volunteer


I'm a 30-year-old gay professional working in the book publishing field.

I like making new friendships and learning about where people come from, how they perceive the world, and what their inspirations and aspirations are. I enjoy all kinds of rare music that I discover through Spotify and Pandora.

My favorite seasons are spring and summer when the temperatures are mild and comfortable. When it is nice out, you can find me watching live bands perform; visiting coffee shops; stumbling upon hidden yet beautiful trails, parks, and creeks; going to amusement parks, carnivals, fairs, and street festivals; and planning and going on road trips.

During the winter, I like to stay in and not go out as much, mostly having TV show/movie marathon nights and game nights; writing poetry and reading both fiction and poetry; going to poetry readings, art exhibits/shows, museums, and so on.

I stay up quite late, but I work 9-5 Monday through Thursday. I love to talk and if you are energetic, like to stay up late, and go out to have fun and are curious about the world and sharing about your life, we will get along well!


Be altruistic.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted people from the United States, Canada, England, Denmark, Czech Republic, Germany, and Italy. I hope to host travelers from other countries as well.

As of February 14, 2014, I have hosted about 60 nights total for 31 Couchsurfers!


I've stayed with a host for two nights in San Francisco. I mostly host Couchsurfers.
