About Me


To visit every continent and meet new and interesting people


I work as an attorney in NYC but travel is my passion. I love meeting new people and finding new ways to look at the world...I think there's so much to learn from other peoples' perspectives and life experiences. I also love to experience the local food and wine when I travel, since eating is probably #2 on my list of favorite things to do!


I like to mix things up and experience as many different things as I can. I genuinely believe that we can learn so much from other people and find that travel is a great gateway for opportunities and enlightenment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been a Couchsurfing member for a long time, but just recently decided to become active again.


My first Couchsurfing experience was with a girl in Llubljana, Slovenia. I have had a few more since and always had a good experience. I have found that the world is full of warm, welcoming people!
