About Me


Meet interesting people and share joyful moments with them.


I moved from California. I used to live in the Bay Area, and made some awesome friends there. One of those friends told me about CS, and I decided to log on and find out what it was all about. Since then, I've met some very interesting, very cool people and plan to continue being a part of CS however I can.

I'm always up for most activities, and I'm game for anything once!

When we connect, I will make sure that we have a good time (and if we're in a group, that we all have a good time).


I love to meet people, to help people, to make connections. A shared laugh, a mutual emotion, that's what makes my world go round.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a regular at the CS meets since I started, and plan to be kind of the unofficial host for the next few while the other regulars are out. If you need anything, please let me know.


The best thing in the world is spontaneous travel! And the next best is, of course, planned travel. I've spent some awesome times with friends I met from CS, traveling to interesting places and doing completely awesome things. CS to me is a great way to share your cultural background, get to know people on a deeper level and have fun in new places.


I love snowboarding, sailing, and socializing. However, reading is how I prefer to spend my alone time. I'm huge into personal development, and I try to spend at least as much time reading things that'll make me grow as things that entertain. A balance is what I strive to achieve, in all things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The moment of clarity and jubilation when I first linked turns on a snowboard (and then promptly fell down), in the fluffy snow of the Sierra Nevada.

The realization that we are all just tiny, tiny specks of sand that really only matter as much as we make ourselves, on a drunken dark night on the beach under the stars in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you how to snowboard, ski (the very basics), lift weights, and eat healthy. Even a little bit of gardening although I'm not a very green thumb - mostly because I'm too forgetful to remember to water the darn plants! lol.

I want to learn how to do yoga, and anything else that you can teach me.
