About Me


To help out travelers like they helped me during my travels!


I work at Airbnb, which is something in between Couchsurfing and a hotel. I love it in part because it brings people like my parents, who would normally never couchsurf, closer to that kind of local travel experience.

A few years ago, I spent a year traveling around Europe and Asia, and it completely changed my life. I'm very happy to have all my friends around again but I miss meeting travelers and I love hosting when I have time.

I also love to cook, and I'll try to make dinner for you if I can. :)


It will probably be a while before I can turn my jumbled thoughts into something so precise...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I love hosting Couchsurfers whenever I can. I just got back from a year-long trip around Europe and Asia, and I couchsurfed several times. I have hosted a bunch of people.


I have stayed with people in LA, Montreal, Newcastle, and Kyoto. Every time was an amazing experience. I have hosted people from around the US as well as all over Europe and Asia. I also host Airbnb guests.

Once, I was hosted in Kyoto by a middle-aged guy who set up a whole house separate just for Couchsurfers!
