About Me


To meet new people, see new places, broaden my horizons, and help others to do the same.


I'm a laid-back person for the most part. I love meeting new people and just hanging out. I like using my free time to cook, play games, and especially to meet up with my friends and talk about whatever's on our minds. I always enjoy a good laugh.


I live my life for me. My only goal is to happy. Which sounds simple...
I think it's good not to let little things get to you. Every so often, life needs a little shake to mix things up. I like to think about how I'll look back on life when I'm 80- and I want to make sure I think "yeah, I did everything I wanted, I made some mistakes and took some risks, and I had a great time."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hopefully I can help people feel more welcome in San Jose by showing them around and introducing them to cool people in the area. Trying to meet new people myself. And hopefully couchsurfing myself some time.


I've couchsurfed many a place, but never from someone I didn't know or have a close connection (like a mutual friend) with. Looking forward to trying out this site!
