About Me

I'm self employed and my side hustles include being a landlord, running an AirBnB in Austin, Texas, hosting house concerts and working on a T-Shirt start up.

I've got memberships to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, DeYoung Museum, and Legion of Honor and can get you set up with free tickets. You can also accompany me to get into the Exploratorium and Oakland Museum of California for Free

If I have free time I'm more than happy to give you a tour of San Francisco!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love traveling, meeting new people, and learning about other cultures.

If you are from a spanish speaking country, I'd love to practice my spanish with you.

Love sharing my city with travelers ... perhaps you could reciprocate if I visit your city.

I've lived in Darmstadt (Germany), Bilbao, (Spain), Barcelona (Spain), and Madrid (Spain).


I love live music, art galleries, street art, museums, walking, movies, good food, and travel.
