About Me

This is a joint profile that I share with my boyfriend Larry Mancinelli.

We are eating our way around the world one dish at a time.

We love traveling and meeting new friends!!! We are both ENFP (Myers Briggs personality) - so you'll find we're both very easy to get along with.

Alex has a background in nonprofit work and content management for a local news publication. I volunteer and spend my free time with foster youth and developing curriculum for the YOUTH training project at San Francisco State University. I also teach yoga!

Larry is in IT and is currently a technical trainer for He loves craft beer and trying anything new. He is very humble and generous to friends and family.

I have a rescued chihuahua named Bebot.

We both live in Queen Anne, Seattle, WA. We love our city! My couch is open for all cs-ers and friends needing a place to stay.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We are surfers and also have a couch and spare room. Hit us up and if we're available you can sleep at our place and explore Seattle with us. We've been told we're great hosts. It's up to you to decide!
