About Me


Meeting new interesting people at new locations!


I am 25 years old. I want to meet honest people, party people, and sports fans. I am not going to reveal my teams here until I hear from you.

I believe in being honest and upfront. I am looking to meet those from all walks of life. I haven traveled about half of Southeast Asia, most of Europe and the United States. My favorite people there were from Cambodia, Laos, parts of Europe. I love people that are honest and enjoys hanging with other people just to get to know one another. My ideal friend is someone who is not laid back/lazy but someone who is daring and the life of the party. I am someone who loves to laugh and tell stories and make others laugh.

I'd be especially interested if you have a background different from mine and can tell interesting stories. I'd love to just eat foods unique to the region!


I have a compassionate heart and I understand the common human struggles that we all go through. I am especially willing to help in all of my capacity, though it'd always be nice if I am rewarded :P.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only hosted once as of now but start again since I just started living in my own place. I have surfed a lot, but never more than 2 days at a place. I have always had a great experience interacting with my hosts. I think it's great that many of them are open-minded, understand the way I travel and I owe them deeply.


I have many hobbies, maybe too many. Since about 5 years ago, I have started portrait and wedding photography. I like telling stories about people. If you are interested, I'd be delighted to show them to you.

I am interested in art, drama, films of the suspense and thrillers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Yankees.
