About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get out of my comfort zone and experience new people, places, and things!

ABOUT ME

I like food, movies, photography, hiking, running, experiencing new cultures, and learning about people.

PHILOSOPHY

You know how Ghandi said "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians."?
I want to be more like my Christ and less like those Christians.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd love to meet up and explore LA with you or just grab a coffee or take a walk and talk.
I enjoy going to museums, art shows, going on adventures, and exploring.

I've been to Japan and absolutely loved it. If you're planning on going, I'd be happy to talk about my experiences and share what I learned.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

There was that one time when I took a trip and I met up with that person. And then there was that other time where someone else was traveling and they met up with me. We talked and stuff.
Oh man. Good times.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My journey to Japan has definitely been the highlight of my traveling experiences thus far. I was shown much hospitality + met a lot of great people there!
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of soaking in a second-story hot spring bath on a brisk moonlit night, looking across at Mt. Fuji, shortly before a blanket of clouds tucked it in for the night. =)
