****IF YOU SEND ME A GENERIC MESSAGE I WILL NOT HOST YOU****
****Seriously if you intend to just go to Disney/Universal and not interact (IE we're a free hotel room for you) don't even bother requesting.****
So i guess about me huh? I graduated the University of Florida as an Art major, worked as a photojournalist for a few years, backpacked for a little over half a year through Asia and then decided to go teach English in Seoul, South Korea! Now I'm back in Florida, training to become a commercial pilot while slowly crying in a corner at how expensive it is. When I'm not traveling solo, I'm traveling with my SO, who's lived in Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, and America among other places. Together we've got 5 continents down and looking to add our final 3 in the upcoming few years ^_^
I'm a fairly laid back sorta guy, I like to listen and hear peoples stories and I like to go to cafes with my friends and just sit back and relax that or go to a nice grassy area when the weather is nice and watch the clouds roll by. Like i said, I'm laid back. I don't mind clubbing or partying but I don't do it often, maybe go once or twice a month.
I love listening to music, but unfortunately I can't play. If it's got a nice beat, i'll listen to it, From American pop to Japanese pop, Traditional African music to Eurobeats, I love it all ^_^
So yeah thats about it oh! if you want to take a look at my pictures, my portfolio is: http://www.rayiazk.com
