About Me


to visit different places and meet people


I'm really laid back and fairly easy to get along with. I grew up in southern California and studied at Santa Monica College and UCI.

I like meeting new people and love traveling.
I also enjoy learning about different cultures and traditions.


I believe we can learn something from everyone we come across. Life is about experiences and connections, not about competition or material objects.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've attended CS events, hosted people in my home in California, and surfed in the US / Canada / Mexico.


I've hosted six couchsurfers from Austria, Brazil, New Jersey, New York, San Francisco, & Taiwan.

I couchsurfed for the first time in La Mision, Mexico in 2008 at Nathan's wonderful home by the beach.

I couchsurfed during a two week trip through Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver, and Portland.
