About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to visit different places and meet people

ABOUT ME

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.

PHILOSOPHY

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

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

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

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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.
