About Me

Grew up in southern California, went to school in the midwest, ended up in the bay.

I'm a software engineer, writer, and product strategist - in my spare time I love to volunteer with STEM based organizations, hike, eat delicious food, and travel.

My top hobbies are jiu jitsu, muay thai, reading, and programming.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I travel a lot, and I'm really tired of the combing through pages and pages of tourist sites looking through manufactured lists of local highlights.
