About Me


To make the world a better place


Disclaimer: I feel that anything I write in this "all about me" box would be biased opinion,and therefore not an accurate depiction of your view on me, so for a bi-partisan nonprejudged perspective of me I recommend you checkout my references.

Recently entered into the real working world after a long ride of school and travels. Absolutely LOVE San Francisco and everything it brings.

I love to cook, learn, travel and hear great stories so feel free to contact me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


FREE HUGS advocate, cook-off and couch surfing fanatic.


My first experience was in Amsterdam for two days with Rose (Hobbit love) but it turned out to be ten. We had a wonderful time. Since then I have returned for a second and third trip to visit Rose and I hope to see her again soon.

When I travel it is almost exclusively with friends, family and CSers. I love the community and everything it has to offer.

Thank you to all who have given received and cleaned up ;)
