About Me

We area a married couple (have been married for 11 years now) and recently our life changed. We have a baby boy (born early March 2015). But we still love traveling and enjoy the company of international travelers.
Currently, Chris is a PhD student at UW and Szilvia is at home with the baby.
We have a dog and a cat.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

We hosted a few people so far from CS, but we have had a lot more just "random" people crashing in our old big house in Minnesota. We were hosted in Chicago and Portland, and all were very positive experiences (except that it is really hard to find hosts in popular places!) In the last few years though we have not been able to host much, but now we'd love to get back to hosting.
We have also been to meetups (though not recently).


Music, arts, books, politics, environmental issues, nature, pets, children, culture, traveling (obviously) and much much more.

Music, Movies & Books

Chris plays the trombone (now only sometimes), but otherwise we like all GOOD music without any genre limitations!
Our common favorite author is Octavia Butler.
