About Me


To see a world in a grain of sand


I'm currently a student at the University of California displaced in Europe for the time being. I'm somewhat shy so I can be a little quiet at first, but it doesn't take much prodding to open me up! I have a slight case of dry sarcasm which I promise I'm trying to improve (in both senses), but because of this sometimes I end up putting my foot in my mouth - sorry! I'm pretty friendly otherwise and I love getting to know other people. I could say more about myself, but I wouldn't want to give you a false impression - best solution is to just meet me!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm currently looking to surf but once I get home I'd be open to host.


Where to start? Well I play the piano and have been playing since I was around four (Mary had a little lamb, anyone?) I enjoy piano music and above all I enjoy watching people play the piano no matter what their skill level; good times can be (and have been) had around a piano! Another keyboardesque instrument I play is the computer (see what I did there?) as I'm an avid PC gamer.

Growing up in the Silicon Valley I've also caught the tech bug and unfortunately find myself attracted to said sector; I'm way too into mobile technology (as a hobby - I honestly don't know that much about it) and everything the "cloud" has to offer. I also enjoy gorging on horribly unhealthy snacks while consuming as many movies as I can. And in speaking of movies, I love being a part in the making of them (amateur, but someday - professional!) Anyone who adores the art of movie making like I do can automatically consider themselves super awesome and cool.

Um, I also like traveling :)

*j'aime bien parler le français avec ceux qui le parlent aussi ; alors si vous parlez français (même un tout petit peu) parlons-le ensemble - on pourrait quand-même parler le franglais!
