About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living in Sweden and trying to explore as much as I can before going to the states in June

ABOUT ME

I went to college in New York City then I moved out to Los Angeles to enjoy the weather. I worked for a financial firm out in Los Angeles until switching careers to marketing at an internet startup company. Our company went bankrupt and I came to Sweden to get a masters degree. Interesting things about me... I planned to ride my bicycle from Los Angeles to Panama, but while I was in Mexico people stole my identity in Los Angeles... I rushed to get back and hithchiked to get back quicker. I plan to finish that bike ride. I have also done an Ironman triathlon. Right now, I am just looking forward to learning more about Swedish culture and getting my masters degree.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to do the unexpected.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I will definitely host people. When I see people bicycle touring, I invite them in too.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None. But, I have voluntarily slept at a jail in Mexico. I was bicycle touring and had no place to set up my tent. I decided that the police station was the safest place for me.
