About Me

Hi there. I'm a Kenyan student currently pursuing degrees in Computer Science and Economics at Tufts University in Boston. I am quite a funny extrovert; I'd do anything for a good laugh. I'm a very keen and avid learner; hence, my reason to want to sleep on locals' couches. My academic interests are mainly in technology, economics and finance. I love burritos, dancing to all kinds of music and reading.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People interest me - I'm always eager to hear another person's life story and just as eager to share my own.
I love travelling (cheaply, of course!)
I would very much rather learn about a place from local's perspective than read about it in tourist guides and comments on Trip Advisor.


Software Development, running, soccer, traveling, reading, drawing, learning new languages, trance music and coding.
