About Me


Travel the world and meet new people!


I graduated college May 2010 and then booked a one way ticket to the Cook Islands one day when I was bored sitting on my couch. I was planning on going from there to New Zealand for a month or two and then heading home. I recently finished my trip after 3.5 years and 42 countries later and now I am settled in NYC. I try to live by the motto "experience everything," whether it's trying a new type of food, going to see a new DJ/artist, or traveling to a new country, every new experience has a story behind it!

PHILOSOPHY Live the Life you Love, Love the Life you Live

20 Years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I hosted a couple people while living in Australia but for the most part I haven't had many opportunities to host. Now that I am settled down hopefully this will change!


Has been really incredible so far. Such cool people and very welcoming!


LOVE music, food, traveling, meeting new people, drinking, having a good time

Music, Movies & Books

Music is a large part of my life. I love everything ranging from Jamaican dub to 60's psychedelic garage rock to all types of electronic music.
