About Me

Traveling around Southeast Asia in the spring. My first time doing a long term trip and I'm excited.


Meet new people, eat some good food, and have fun


I am William, a sporty, fun, and responsible guy that loves to learn about anything and everything and loves to have fun. I'm a big time basketball and football fan along with going to baseball games in the summer. I enjoy cooking, going out for drinks/dancing, festivals, lots of surfing, movies, and lifting weights.

My Philosophy
Everyday is a new day and you never know when it can be your last. So try to enjoy and learn about this world as you can. Ignorance is one of the ugliest traits a person can have

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people and getting first hand experience of their culture. I also love showing people what normal folks do wherever I am at.


Music-hip hop, house, latin pop, blues rock, and R&B.
Sports-basketball and american football are my favorite. I also coach track for a local high school so I can always give pointers on how to start running more or anything else in that arena.
I'm also interested in movies, bars, new languages, cultural diversities, nightlife, and more!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy reading a wide variety of books such as sci-fi, fantasy, murders, mysteries, biographies, philosophical writings, etc etc. My favorite book of all-time is The Talisman.

My favorite artist are Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, John Legend, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars....nvm way too many to count.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Helping baby sea turtles reach the sea in Paml Beach, Florida. I had to protect them from birds and crabs. I even got a chance to hold them.

Took a tour of Takism with another fellow CSer in Istanbul

Spent the night dancing away in downtown Bogota

Spent a wonderful week with my best friend in Costa Rica that led to him getting married

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm both an engineer and attorney. I am currently practicing intellectual property and I really enjoy it. I also ran track and played college football at a high level so I can help with that along with many of the American sports.
I can teach you about American culture and the history.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook and provide many entertaining stories.
