About Me

Hi,

My name is Brian and I'm a grad student studying at University of Vienna. I'm from southern California and am studying here through the Erasmus Mundus Global Studies Consortium. I spent a portion of my childhood growing up in Japan and in Micronesia, so I am familiar with that region of the world. However, I've never been to Europe before, so I am trying to get to as much countries as I can in my two years. I'm a chill guy, and although I like to drink and explore, I am very respectful of personal space and items. I am very outdoorsy, so if you can give me some tips on great natural sights, I'm all ears. I can either be very to myself, or am down to hang out depending on your preference :). Cheers!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm new to the community, and heard amazing things about it. I want to give it a go.

Since I am new I don't have too many references, so feel free to visit my FB and IG accounts :)
