About Me

Hello! I'm a new user to the CouchSurfing experience! From Manhattan, New York City I'm currently living in Kansas City finishing my last year of med school as I interview for Residencies around the country. I came to Kansas City not knowing what to expect. To be honest I was narrow-minded and thought it was a small cattle herding town. It's not a cattle herding town. It's not small. It's got a lot of spirit, crazy jazz, great food, art in plethora, socially open minded people, a booming market and now, once again, world champions. Congratulations Royals! As I am exploring and surfing upon couches, I openly welcome new friends to do the same upon mine!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

///More Generally///
It's lovely to be a part of this amazing community of reaching out. In every city I have traveled I have met the most miraculous souls in the simplest of places. The more peoples, words, cultural concepts and stories we add to our spirits, the better people we become. I think I'd rather appreciate the cultures of the cities I visit, in a simultaneously more personable and inexpensive fashion as opposed to the corporate nonculture of a hotel (in this day and age, is such a concept even necessary?!). This is fun and this is modern, and it is an expression of true beneficence!

///More Immediatly///
I'm auditioning in Detroit for a position as new resident at a Hospital in Mount Clemens. I arrive December 3rd and prepare for an interview the following morning. Other than the interview which ends in the early afternoon on the 3rd, I will explore the town and enjoy what Michigan has to offer! I'd love to take a host and whatever roommates/friends they may have out for dinner! I love great brews, fun whiskey cocktails, entertaining conversation and being young. Though my interview takes priority, other than business, I aim for it to be maximum pleasure! The host can be part of that, or otherwise, it is all up to you!

Interests

I currently am working on two pieces of fiction. Writing is my world, and oneday I hope to make it as a second career. One thing at a time nonetheless, for my main interest (my career) at this point is Medicine. Still, I enjoy the simpler things in life, the beauty I see in travels, music, art, theater, sights, scents and sounds. Conversations with bohemian romantics over red glasses of wine. I enjoy boxing as well, and though I no longer professionally compete (I've quit due to potential -though never sustained- health consequences), I find the training (aerobics and dance routines) to be the most exhilarating and health promoting activity out there.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've worked hospice for patients suffering from Parkinsons, Alzheimers and late stage cancer.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Friendly conversation mixing with undertones of humor, hilarity, talks of travels, people, cultures, and overtones of warmth. I can share drinks and war stories, and make laughter abound. Though I will be busy and away from the 'couch' anytime other than the 'couchsurf' I would love to take the host out for a bite to eat, and to explore the town for as long as the Host can offer.
