About Me


To see the world by both bike and foot


I am a cyclist living in the California bay area. I love to race road bikes and cheer on my favorite teams as they tour the world.


I work for Pandora Media a really amazing internet radio station which is the biggest of its kind in the US.


Stay open minded and you will always have options.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurefed through France, England and Italy while backpacking through Europe. I have loved every moment and will never go back to staying in hotels. Couchsurfing gives you experiences and memories the like of which you will never believe!


I love to ride road bikes. I raced for my university in the past and loved every moment of it (I will be continuing to race into the future).

I also love experiencing nightlife and good coffee, I am making it my mission to discover the best cafes in the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Pink Floyd and classic rock, but I am always listening for any music which sounds good too (in any genre).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Raced bikes in a different city every week for 15 weeks.
Traveled through South Africa, London, Israel, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States (my home land, California)

Couch-surfed from London to France to Italy, and had moments to remember for my whole life at every stop!
