About Me

I'm an artist and doctoral student currently traveling through Europe with my girlfriend. She's an Anthropologist.

I'm doing a PhD in Art, Philosophy and Critical Studies. I'm originally from Nigeria but grew up in the US. Been living in Europe the last 2 years (Berlin and Prague).

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I currently participate by surfing. I've been on CS and am still getting the bud of it. I haven't hosted much but look forward to setting down soon to be able to host.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before this service was news to me, I meet random people at parties and while socializing and have couch surfed in New York and Atlanta and loved it. Also, the people on here seems super nice and welcoming and it's a great experience thus far.
