About Me

An engineer who knows his way around the kitchen.

A budding photographer who likes food and travelling.

I am a free-spirited, adventurous, and well-mannered person.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Learned about couch surfing the first time from the solo travellers who I have met when I was exploring South Africa. Found the concept of staying on acquaintance's couches really interesting which enables travelling more enjoyable, enriching, and definitely cheap. I told myself I will definitely would want to try such experience because it provides a great platform to create experiences founded on sharing stories with other locals and travellers, cultural immersion, and trust.

I am really looking forward for my first taste of couch surfing in the near future!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to speak my native language (Tagalog), cook Filipino food, and play archery.
