About Me

By day, I'm a corporate hustler, spreadsheet-wrangling corporate warrior.
But when the clock strikes freedom, I shed my business persona and transform into a creature of the night... or at least a dedicated Netflix binger.
You'll find me passionately debating the finer points of life at a local bar, grooving awkwardly at music festivals, or sobbing uncontrollably over a good book.
Ambivert by nature, I recharge with equal parts wild nights out and cozy nights in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Let's be honest, I'm always down for a good story and meeting interesting people!

I believe the best way to understand the world is through genuine connections. Couchsurfing offers a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, stories, and experiences with people from all over. I love discovering the lesser-known parts of a place that only locals truly know and appreciate. In return, I'm excited to share my own culture and viewpoint with others.

Interests

Exploration fuel: Give me a strong cup of coffee, a bustling street food market, and an undiscovered corner of a city, and I'm one happy camper!

Beyond the guidebook: My kind of travel is less about ticking off tourist hotspots and more about immersing myself in the local scene. Show me where the locals grab their morning coffee, find their favorite street eats, and hang out after work.

The social side of food: The best part of street food is the atmosphere – the sights, smells, and the lively crowds make the experience.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: My playlist is filled with smooth R&B and neo-soul vibes – think Daniel Caesar, Alina Baraz, Masego... But I've also got a soft spot for the catchy indie sounds.

Books: Hanya Yanagihara's "A Little Life" completely wrecked me... Anyone else a fan of emotionally devastating reads?

Movies: Mind-bending sci-fi epics like "Interstellar" are my absolute jam.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took my first solo camping trip and discovered I'm way more resourceful than I thought

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I'm always happy to share stories from my travels, the best local coffee spots I've discovered, and maybe even teach you a few goofy dance moves (no guarantees on quality).

Learn: I'm eager to learn about your city's hidden gems, try the hole-in-the-wall places only locals know about, and pick up some of your favorite slang and phrases.

Share: "Life is either unforgettable adventures or nothing." Let's trade travel tales, debate our favorite street foods, and above all, share plenty of laughs.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can offer a comfortable place to stay in a shared bedroom. If you prefer more privacy, you can use my bedroom, and I'll sleep on the couch. During weekdays, I work from 9 to 5, but I'm free on weekends and happy to be your guide and show you around the city!
