I'm an entrepreneur, self- starter, go-getter and doer. I love to travel, experience and explore new cultures and I'm constantly inspired by diversity.
From 2007 to present, I've founded and co-founded numerous small to mid-sized projects, both here in the US and in Shenzhen, China. I'm a firm believer in creativity and bringing ideas into the real world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Currently, I am couch surfing while I explore employment/career opportunities in San Jose/The Bay area. Once I've secured a job, I will move my family out to the Bay Area.
I joined Couchsurfing in 2008 when I moved to Shenzhen, China. During that time, I was traveling throughout Southeast Asia and hosting CS during their trips to Shenzhen. It has always been a great, positive experience.
Connecting with locals is the only true way to experience an area.

Music, Movies, and Books
As a musician, I always tell people that I'm not genre specific - it;s all about the song. Regardless of the genre, if the songs, sounds, arrangements, dynamics, etc speak to me then I'm into it.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Father to my daughter. And, visiting Aphrodite's Rock in Cyprus. (small island in the center of the world -at least the historically -speaking ancient world) Ask me, I can clear up any confusion!
Teach, Learn, Share
It's cliche, but everyone. Meeting someone new is both like looking into and mirror and exploring a new cavern; one provides a reflection of yourself while the other gives you insight into a new world.
