About Me


Turn mercury into gold.


Moving to Liverpool in June 2024! Among the exotic locales I have lived in my life are London, Ontario; Toronto; Montreal; Palo Alto, California; Berlin; Paris; New York/Brooklyn; Washington, DC; Oakland/Berkeley; Boston; Charleston, South Carolina.


If you're asking about the cost of owning a yacht, you probably shouldn't have an account on

I currently live in Berkeley but will soon move to Liverpool. until June '24 I live in an apartment with a separate bedroom and living room. I have a couch and an inflatable mattress.

No word on my living setup in Liverpool yet, though I don't expect to be able to host until *at least* October 2024. That said, I am very up for meeting both locals and travelers

ABOUT SURFING AT MY PLACE [on hold until October 2024]
-Please be mature, clean,, independent, responsible, communicative.

-I can accommodate at most two guests (i.e. travelling together) at a time.
-Please have at least 2-3 detailed references. I need to know that you know what CS is about and that you are mature, responsible, clean. You can get references by attending events or hosting or even having friends vouch for you.
-No last minute requests please! The ideal timeframe is a stay of 2-3 days about two weeks before you're travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host mature, responsible, and unobtrusive people.

Sometimes, when I need it, I surf. I try to be mature, responsible, and unobtrusive.


When I moved to DC, I had a great run of hosts. Thank you! Now trying to pay it back in San Fran!
