About Me

My name's Preston and I'm on Couchsurfing so I can learn about different parts of the world.

I’m making the best out of my 20’s and I’m always looking for new ways to spice up my life experience by meeting interesting people and trying new things.

For work I’m in the software development and cyber security industries.

I’m a saber fencer 🤺 and if I have my gear I can show you a move or two.

I respect all people.

I’m not looking for hookups as that ruins the core of this app and the community. If a moment is meant to happen naturally then so be it although I detest those who ruin the couch surfing community by being a pariah to the travel world. Go download tinder and keep CS true to it’s roots!

For all the convenient nudists out there I want to put it out there that even though I am comfortable in my own skin and don’t mind adjusting to genuine cultures, I am a “heterosexual cis male” as one needs to clarify these things in this day and age.

Foodwise I love a good Pineal dish which in simple terms is the Paleo-Jesus diet. (No dairy, gluten, processed foods, non-halal/kosher meat)

Spiritually I was born Catholic, started a cabin/race war during confirmation, got low-key kicked out, had a vision to go to Egypt and illegally meditate around Giza, joined Islam by chant, met Aliens in New York, concurrently joined Scientology, joined an extraterrestrial & inter-dimensional organization (cult), learned about other spiritual organizations, created my own spiritual organization which was inspired by Scientology after I attended Scientology’s version of the Oscars, and NOW I continue to grow my own spiritual organization through a formal nonprofit with a full-time preacher.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My deep involvement in cybersecurity education led me to create a college cybersecurity degree program at age 19 and taught at over a half dozen Universities at age 24.

Teach, Learn, Share

I studied at a culinary arts school and can teach a few interesting recipes from Paleo to Vegan.

I can show you a few good computer tricks such as the ELUSIVE dark-web, I know parkour, and can make your computer run faster.

I’d love to learn more Portuguese and Russian.

If you have any good 👽 stories I’m all ears.
