About Me

I'm a curious person, an introvert at times but I warm up quickly. I am a software engineer and travel the world while building technologies that can potentially change the way humans collaborate. I'm currently exploring Latin America on motorcycle. I spend two or three months in a country. This gives me the opportunity to immerse myself in local culture and make local friends. I'm currently in exploring Baños, Ecuador

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet interesting people from different cultures to get a different perspective of life. I am open to meeting anyone but I'm particularly interested in meeting entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, artists and people in technology. Or anyone who thinks they are doing something that will change the world

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've eaten 6 double Whoppers with cheese in one sitting beating out my friends in an eating contest. I'm quite proud of that lol. Oh and I also have software patent in cryptography and security.

Teach, Learn, Share

Mathematics, computer science, economics and the intersections of those fields

What I Can Share with Hosts
