About Me


volunteering on relief missions here and there, enjoying sf bay area and travelling around...


i love the outdoors..

i ride an old bmw motorcycle and love it when it's nice out. great way to get around the city! which i love too, b.t.w.


be self-cleaning. leave the place better than you found it. and add a touch of something special along the way..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i started couch surfing a long time back, when it was called 'ultimate frisbee lifestyle' :) traveling around, crashing couches and floorspace and being that low-impact guest with an appreciation for adventure...
