About Me


Exploring new places & meeting new people


My spouse and I live in a two bed one bath apartment with our tuxedo cat, Apollo, in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. We subscribe to the philosophy of work hard, play hard and if we are not in the office you will find us outside running, hiking, climbing and yoga'ing.

We love the outdoor culture here and are excited to share our beautiful home with our couch surfers and to hear about their adventures!

We prefer a max of 2 nights; please reach out to us beforehand if you would like to stay longer! As you can imagine, Santa Barbara is one of the busiest places for hosts so give us as much advance notice as possible.


We have a full size bed in our second bedroom.

Gifts are not necessary, helping out around the apartment is enough; a little consideration for cleanliness goes a long way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've spent months traveling and have met many wonderful CSers out there! We are looking forward to discovering our new home with visiting CSers.


We have hosted about a dozen people and have some neat memories from hosting. We've surfed five times now and each time was a fun and exciting journey!


I want to know everything about everything, particularly if it involves the outdoors, rationality, humanism, acro yoga or paragliding.
