About Me


Moving to Seattle to start loving its lush green and clouded sky.


I am friendly and easy going. I enjoy meeting new people and find myself able to communicate easily. I become excited during new experiences and look forward to changing old habits and creating new perceptions of myself and other cultures/locales.

I am currently moving to Seattle on January 20th 2009. I need a few couches in the area to surf along so as to not stay too long in one place. I have been researching jobs and residences and hope to get one within a week.


Respect and acceptance of individuals are important. I try to be open to others while attempting to maintain a light-hearted calm. Life is incredible and sometimes it is too much so; I find that breathing and appreciating what surrounds me at that moment relieves most anxieties.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My house and I have hosted a number of couch surfers in Santa Cruz, CA over the past 1.5 years I've lived here. We have had surfers from Canada, Europe, and other parts of the U.S.

In the future, I hope to host a surfer or two along the way.
