About Me


To learn, make some pals, see the world


I'm a partnered gay guy from San Francisco, and most of the things that entails: I love public radio, cute dogs, outerwear, indie pop, brunch, childhood games played as adults, self-awareness. I've been known to justify too many decisions with "YOLO'. I listen to a lot of dance music even though I never dance, and I read a lot of fashion blogs even though I dress kind of sloppily.

Above all, I'm super friendly, clean, and respectful, and I get along with all sorts of people provided they're chill with homosexuals like myself.


Be open to new things and don't be afraid, unless you have like legitimate rational fears of physical danger.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd be happy to meet other travelers and hosts just to hang out, and possibly surfing should the need and availability line up. Given the roommate situation I can't offer to host, unless it's someone I've already met and befriended.


I've had a great time couchsurfing in London and meeting up with other CSers in Bangkok and Hong Kong.


Languages, politics, culture... I can get interested in anything except maybe sports. My partner and I refer to them using the blanket term "Sportsball".

Music, Movies, and Books
