About Me


to keep life interesting


I am a person who likes to explore. I am often found dropping everything for a spontaneous road trip or a night full of laughs, card games, and music.

I just finished school and I'm buying my time till I head back into the halls of academe.

I enjoy watching quirky and weird films, good coffee (I'm a coffee snob), exploring local museums, doing virtually anything that gets me outdoors, and excavating archives for odd and obscure documents. You can often find me hanging out with friends watching a new movie, goofing off or out at the bars or cafes for an exotic romp through the nocturnal happenings of the savage civilization of the D.C. Metro area.


Life is too short to be a cog in the machine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to meet anyone who is visiting the D.C. Metro area and would like company exploring the many fun bars, coffeeshops, museums, and galleries that make up the capital.

I would like to be a couch surfer to the many cities and countries I have on my list to visit. Judging from past experiences just being an avid hostel user, the best way to get to know a city is from the locals themselves and meeting other travelers.


I've been to a CouchSurfing party in NYC with a friend of mine who has Couchsurfed a ton. I've met some great people there and would like to have my own experience!
