About Me


Bring awareness to the world by bringing awareness to myself. (that and eating good food!)


Originally from southern California, I tend to be laid back. Why stress? Life's too short. Moved to NYC in 1997 and then to HaNoi at the end of 2009. I relocated to SaiGon in September 2011.I don't consider myself a foodie, but I love to eat. Food is my passion. My motto, "Never waste a meal."I travel not only to eat, but to meet cool and interesting people which I have been fortunate to meet many.


Life is a beautiful journey, I try to enjoy every second no matter where I am.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I'm in town I will be able to host in a limited capacity due to travel schedule. Message me.


My couch surfing experience so far has been all positive. I've made some incredible friends through CS and look forward to meeting many more cool people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm really into the rapidly growing music scene in Vietnam. We have some great local talent here everything from hard rock to dubstep. I go see DJ's or bands play all the time. Message me for upcoming events/shows.

Teach, Learn, Share

When faced with a choice, I've found that the hard thing to do is usually the right thing. And action usually beats out inaction.
