About Me


Traveling SouthEastAsia one couch at a time =)


I Travel, I Eat, and I Play!

I love to discover new places, meet local people, and find Adventures!

Getting opinions from the locals is so much more fun than following a cheap guide book!

Building friendships with local people has helped me embrace the culture so much more than simply visiting the tourist spots.

Thus, I hope to continue meeting new people and hearing their stories through CS.


I Live to Eat - Not Eat to Live.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I take people out when they want to discover San Jose or San Francisco!
