About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have primarily hosted over 75 couchsurfers. It has been an amazingly fun ride so far. And have finally had my first awesome surfing experience, Thanks Olena. My surfing has been limited but had an incredible time in Santiago, Chile with Fabiola and Gloria, Buenos Aires with Daniela and Karla and Rio with Maira and Paula. Thanks all for making it memorable.


I have surfed a dozen hosts and hosted over 100 surfers from all over the world. I have also traveled for work and always try to meet up with CS in the cities that I travel. Has been awesome seeing the things people will do for an open minded fellow traveler looking for local adventures with awesome people.
