About Me

I deal with numbers and code during the day, go to a class, watch a movie, read a book, or hang out with friends at night; travel in some weekends, explore San Francisco in the others.

I am a passionate introvert. I believe in baseball, films, realism, traveling, learning, truth, probability theory, game theory, kind hearts, soulful conversations and good deeds.

Couchsurfing is much more than free couches, it's about sharing stories, experiences, life, and about learning from each other. It has been a part of my life and I really enjoy hosting. That being said, I have a very busy life so I can't and won't host just anyone. Please include the word "livinglow" in your request and tell me why I should host you, but don't spend too much time on it.

Here are a few logistics you want to know about me as a host: go to "My Home" section to make sure you understand my living situation. I usually only accept requests less than a week in advance since my own plans often change from time to time, and two or three nights maximum.

Interests

I am an avid movie goer, love to travel, go to museums, enjoy live music, take photographs, watch baseball, and run every day. I am enthusiastically learning French and Italian, and I enjoy very much good conversations.
