About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel, meet new people, and have a good time while doing it...

ABOUT ME

Time is short, the world is vast, and I like to explore. I realized the other day that that's the main reason I love journalism: exploration. More specifically, I get to 1) learn, 2) meet people and 3) express myself. I read up on some topic, have a chat with some person, and find creative ways to describe some concept. Sounds simple, but that's really all I need. Oh, and free concert tickets from publicists.

I'm very much a "yes" person and try to surround myself with similarly-minded folks. There's not much I won't try - from playing trampoline dodgeball, to testing out "Broga," to tickling the ivories at Madrid jazz clubs, to biking down a spiraling 30-story Boston parking garage ramp in a "V for Vendetta" mask on Dia de los Muertos. These things have all happened.

I am an active person: I love to bike, hike, perform/soak in music, play sports (frisbee, tennis, basketball), and generally enjoy life on this crazy little sphere we live on. I enjoy meeting new friends, and hanging out with old ones. I'll probably like you. You'll probably like me.

PHILOSOPHY

I hate routine, and am constantly looking to try new things. Have any ideas?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted about a dozen or so times, surfed a couple times, and been to Boston meetups on-and-off since September 2008.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I love meeting people from all over the world, antry my best to acquaint Boston visitors with the area. I'm also good friends with some active hosts and am always eager to hang out with their surfers and show them the city. I've also really enjoyed going to CS meet-ups...

Interests

journalism, marketing, social psychology, gender issues, nonverbal communication, playing music, listening to music, writing, frisbee, tennis, racquetball, travel, being goofy, meeting new people everywhere I turn, intellectual curiosity, chocolate-covered espresso beans, and most anything with a backbeat

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Waking Life, Almost Famous, Good Will Hunting, Exit Through the Gift Shop.
Music: Where to begin? Classic rock (Zeppelin, Beatles, Dylan), jazz (Miles, Coltrane), funk (James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire), Motown (Aretha, etc.) and new stuff too (Beck, Flaming Lips, Jurassic 5)
Books: Any interesting social psych book or history of some awesome musician. Also, Where the Wild Things Are.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Backpacking in the Grand Canyon and soaking in the views at sunrise, sunset, and every moment in-between.

Teach, Learn, Share

Be open to others, and they will be open to you. The Golden Rule hasn't failed me yet...
