About Me


Hey there! I am V, I am an adventurer with some experience. I joined the military at age 17 and had my first glimpse of the world. That is when I realized I wanted more. I love red wine, hiking, beach-going, dancing, and making long-lasting connections. The world is a wonderful playground and I like to take any opportunity I can to play. I am an honest friend, loyal, and generous.


Dance like no one is watching

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf but I do my best to bring something to the table. I like to entertain, have cocktails, share interests, and participate in host's life according to their preference


I have gone to a Couchsurfing event in San Diego called Tipsy Tuesday which was fun and it was my first look at the live couch surfing community. My first experience was in Hollywood Florida where I got to surf very comfortable but I also had the opportunity to be a host to other couch surfers. I took them out, showed them the sights I had already seen and I made good friends with them. I like to cook, be active, participate in my host's activities. My experience so far has been very positive and I feel like I already have made really good friends.
