About Me

Hello future friends,

I'm Ben but in elementary school people called me Neb. Currently in Beijing interning till September! I'm decently jokes and enjoy looking at art and forming uninformed opinions about it. Always down to clown so hit me up if you're around. I play guitar, rap and dance when drunk. Enjoy ball hockey, soccer, and going for runs in scenic places.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I absolutely love meeting new people and trying new things. I think there is inherent value in novelty. Since it's probably impossible to experience the entire world in person, the next best thing we can do is share our experiences with others, and for them to do the same.

Music, Movies, and Books

Keep in mind that these are probably always changing, but in general,

Music: I try to listen to everything, but the stuff I really like is indie rock and electronic, deep and future house, hip-hop. Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Don Diablo, Flume, Sylvan Esso, Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Pink Floyd etc

Movies: I watch more TV than movies (The Office, Seinfeld, Mad Men, House of Cards), but movies I'd have to say Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Anchorman, Transformers 3

Books: I read mostly about current events and politics but literature wise I really enjoyed The God Of Small Things, 1984, The Stars' Tennis Balls

Always open to recommendations!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once when I was 6 I took a selfie with the President of Germany.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My humour, which is simultaneously dry and occasionally morbid, my curiosity, which leads to broken rambles about the world, and my cooking, which is ok I guess.
