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 on some weekends, explore San Francisco on the others.

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

PLEASE include the word "livinglow" in your request and tell me why I should host you. Also go to "My Home" section to make sure you understand my living situation. I usually only accept requests a week ahead of time or so, and normally two to three nights maximum.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

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 very much enjoy hosting. That being said, I have a very busy life so I can't and won't host just anyone. So again, please tell me why I should share my apartment and time to host you :)


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.
