One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ate an entire large pizza once (it was big, okay).

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach computer programming, most math, guitar, chess, and english. I love to teach and learn, and am more than happy to devote any amount of time to teaching anybody anything!

I'd love to learn whatever you want to teach, as well as your native language.

I'll bring a chess board wherever I go, we can share a game if you're interested!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good stories, a gift that is applicable/unique to the host (I think I'm a good gift-getter), and fun.

Cuba, Guatemala, Israel, Nicaragua, South Africa, Spain

Countries I’ve Lived In
