About Me


Spanning the globe.


Trying to see as much of the world as I can before I "grow up" and enter the "real world." I grew up in the U.S. in Philadelphia, then moved here to BsAs where I will remain until October of 2008. After there, another journey I suppose.

I love meeting new travelers, but especially locals in a place I've never been before to truly absorb the culture and make new friends.


"Be the change you want to see in the world."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've stayed on friends of friends couches plenty of times, but what I'd really like to do is stay with complete strangers that I think I'd get a long with.

I think having no common grounds prior to meeting someone is a true test of how well you get along with others, and has the most potential to be a great situation.


I love traveling, watching and playing all kinds of sports, reading, writing, going out to bars and clubs, photography, socializing, and plenty of other things that are escaping my mind at the moment.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to count - I used to hate reading and country music, but now I love both.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In January of 2008 I moved from Philadelphia to Buenos Aires by myself with no job and no place to live. It has been an incredible experience and amazing learning process I will surely never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

If I'm on the road and need a place to stay, I'd be more than happy to teach you some English during the time we have together. I received my certificate to teach English as a second language is the summer of 2007.
