About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Leave a little piece of my soul in every place I visit.

ABOUT ME

I love traveling!!! Whether it is for work or personal, I love to meet up with friends and strangers and write a whole chapter on my travels. Always open to meet new people and get lost in strange/beautiful places.

I have a background in nonprofit work (10+ years) and am currently searching for municipal/government opportunities. I volunteer and spend my free time with foster youth and developing curriculum for the YOUTH training project at San Francisco State University.

I have a rescued chihuahua named Bebot. I am in between homes at the moment, but hopefully I can find a permanent place soon and my couch is open for all cs-ers and friends needin a place to stay.

Karma is king. You reap what you sow...sow can we hang out yet?!

PHILOSOPHY

You are the product of the choices you make.
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page. - St. Augustine knew what was up.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere. -Van Wilder

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have never couch surfed before however I do know several surfers that I met through Yelp events and other local CS events. I am looking to couch surf some time in late 2012 so if there is ANYTHING that I need to know/learn/anticipate please tell me!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Haven't experienced it yet! Hoping to meet some people all over the world who would be open to hosting and hanging out with me. I have offered my couch to strangers, but not via Couch Surfing.org. I usually use craigslist.
