About Me


Get out and see the world, meet the people, eat the food, listen to the words and music, love the life. ((please bear in mind, i'm not in Bangkok. I'm in Surat Thani))


Pretty much good at everything... except ironing.. and hiking. or cliff diving. so pretty much good at a lot of things.


Drama free is the way to be!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed in a few different places around the world and the US. I have to say I've met some of the greatest people I know thanks to CS. I reside in ulsan, South korea at the moment and can host.
I have also started a group called SUP - Standup Paddleboarding.
If you're into SUP, you should join the group. It's intended for CSers who are looking to or already paddle around the world.


I have had the pleasure of meeting up with people or staying with hosts in Austin, Chicago, Hong Kong, Dallas, Hawaii, Orlando, and in various places in Thailand.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've jumped off a cliff in Maui.
I've dived the Maldives, Hawaii, and Thailand.
I've taught Thai kids the moonwalk.
I've kayaked in the clear sea of Corfu.
I've slept in floating bungalows.
I've gawked at the city lights of Hong Kong.
I've made kimchi!
I've gambled away my pride in Macau.
I almost got arrested in Vegas. (doesn't everyone?)
I've SUPed in Maui with whales.
I've hiked through valleys in Israel.
I've been chased out of the Red Light District in Amsterdam.
I've partied until the sun comes up in South Korea.

I guess there's been a lot of experiences..but until that list is 100 solids - I'm not going to stop.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach basic massage skills (avoid the spine, for example). I love to cook so I can offer some fun and unique recipes. I'm quite entertaining (apparently).
