About Me

I've been a part of the Couchsurfing community since 2006 -- when I was 17 years old and embarking on a 2 1/2 month-long solo adventure throughout Europe. I've spent the past 4 years working in mobile gaming and traveling around the world for work, and now have left my job to become an indefinite traveler!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe in the Couchsurfing community, which was there for me 10 years ago when I was a poor traveling high school student. Now it's time to revisit =)


Philosophy, music, writing, trekking, anime, epic fantasy novels -- lots of other geeky stuff =)
