About Me


spreading the love...


right now I live in Berkeley, CA, before that I lived in San Jose, CA and Los Gatos, CA. I recently moved here from Tucson AZ. I loved the natural beauty of the land - the Sonoran Desert. I already miss the desert but I am getting acclimated to my new climate of redwood trees, fog, the ocean, rain. I grew up in the San Francisco bay area. I like to be outside, I like sports and yoga, I like to eat healthy, natural foods. I like to cook. I am very open minded, I listen and observe more than I talk. Meeting new people and sharing experiences is what I love about this site.


Don't do to others want you wouldn't want done to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people when I'm home and I surf couches when I travel ... spreading good vibes as I go


I have had wonderful experiences couch surfing in Turkey and throughout West Africa. I had a great time hosting people while living in Arizona and now that I am grounded in California for a while, I intend to give back to the world by offering the same warm hospitality that I received while traveling.


I love to learn and explore. I like to cook, read, talk, listen to music, play drums, play guitar, imagine, debate, I love to do all sports like snowboarding and basketball, tennis, soccer, swimming, surfing, baseball. i like yoga .. i like to be out in the desert. but really, i just like to hang out with good people, and I want to see some of the many ways that people can and do live.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all music and always want to hear more - hip-hop, reggae, funk, rock, latin - cuban jazz, american jazz, electronic, DJ's, and I like european classical music too.

Books are great, i have a lot of them. i like to read fiction, autobiography, philosophy, poetry and I like to read from all cultures

i love to watch movies of all sorts . i just saw Adaptation and thought it was great!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watched the sunrise above the clouds and surrounded by ocean from the top of Haleakala, a 3000m volcanic crater on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Also, I've seen, on multiple occasions, people from many different backgrounds come together to work for a common goal, with community placed before self...that's beautiful.
