Join Couchsurfing to see Taylor’s full profile.
Hi, I'm Taylor :). My current interests are always changing (focus is hard) but right now I'm into mushroom foraging , backcountry skiing ❄️ , and piano . I don't believe in favorites but if I did my favorite composer would be Chopin.
A few fun facts:
- I once got robbed at gunpoint in Guatemala when I was 18
- I have written a few pretty popular medium posts: https://medium.com/@twm013 (over 200k views)
- I have 37 cousins just on my mom's side of the family. 35 out of 37 live in Texas
- I learned to cook for the first time by cooking a 5 course meal for 40 people per night at an off the grid hut in the mountains of New Hampshire.
Hosting: I live in a 2 Bedroom House in the Mission district of San Francisco with my lovely roommate Yash (https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/imyashmittal). I don't have many references but I'm mentioned to many of Yash's glowing reviews if you want to verify that we don't bite.
We have a couch available for 1-2 couch surfers. If you want to see the inside of a boujee tech company office while you're in SF, we can help with that
I'm always down for good conversations and adventures. Bonus points if you've lived in another country.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Splitboarding up Mt. Shasta and sending it from the summit! If you're not familiar - Mt. Shasta is a 14k high volcano that makes up the longest backcountry ski run in the lower 48 of the U.S (> 6k vertical feet). This mountain absolutely kicked my ass, but for some unknown reason, I forced myself to do it twice :). The 2nd time was on the 1st day of summer.
Teach, Learn, Share
Pen spinning, cooking (I've been told my risotto is pretty good), juggling, crazy travel stories.
