About Me

Hey there. I've been in San Francisco for about a year now and absolutely love it here. There's something about the energy in the city that makes it unlike anywhere else I've ever lived or travelled to.

I'm 34 and work in technology, which means I spend most of the day in meetings. At night I love heading out to explore new restaurants and hotspots.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I spent a few months backpacking in Europe I was lucky enough to meet some great friends who showed me sides of the city I never would have gotten to know otherwise.

There's something special about meeting people while traveling, and you get to discover things you wouldn't normally find if you stayed in a hotel.


Well for starters, Travel (obviously :-). I also love rock climbing, anything having to do with the beach, good food, good wine, going to music shows, cooking, and reading.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies. This year I thought Whiplash and Birdman were both great.

Books, anything by Paulo Coelho, Chuck Pahalniuk, or Jack Kerouac.

Music, I really like it all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Haha ok not quite, but it's definitely on my to-do list!
