About Me


To make lasting friendships, experience new cultures, and open my mind


I am the son of an artist and an engineer. Contemplative, adventurous, creative (at least I like to think so). It is a great mix, but I wish there was more of a market for my artistic skills. Anyway, by day I am a software developer (iPhone apps currently).

I love to meet new people and get new perspectives. I just got some great advice on the bus from a man with a Transformers tattoo on his forehead. I love that. Don't worry, even if you don't have a face tattoo, I would like to hear your take on things.


I hope to make a difference in this world. Hard to do, but I am always looking for ways.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Events, coffee and hosting for now...


When I get a chance, I love cycling, sailing, and enjoying the amazing bay area.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For Redbull's Flugtag, I built and piloted a giant dragonfly "aircraft" off at 30' platform into the water. The incredible amount of work, the teamwork required and the audience cheers afterwards made it a life altering experience (for the better!)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English, computer programming, iOS development. I would love to learn more Spanish and Korean.
