About Me


I'm a single gay male living in Santa Barbara for grad school, and recently moved here from San Francisco. I study Linguistics, and in my free time I enjoy grabbing a drink with friends, cooking, wine tasting, painting, going to concerts, listening to music, and travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am currently looking to surf couches when I travel and play tour guide to visitors in Santa Barbara when I have free time and am in town, but don't have the space to host anyone right now as I live in a tiny bachelor apartment.


I have hosted a few couch surfers in the past when I lived in San Francisco, and had amazing experiences each time. It's been a great experience being able to take visitors around town, cook meals together, and make new friends.
