About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Eat to walk, walk to eat.

ABOUT ME

I'm full of contradictions. I love being in cities, but don't like being far away from the mountains. I like to be able to carry on intelligent conversation, but also like to do so in an extremely low register.

My friends would definitely describe me as calm and laid-back.

Also, I love to eat. If traveling, I can easily plan a couple of days around trying out the local food scene.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm new to Couchsurfing. I biked across the US in 2009 and stayed with some hosts through Warmshowers.org, a site that's specifically set up for touring cyclists. Had some wonderful experiences doing that, so I decided to try Couchsurfer.

Interests

See above.

I just finished law school. I have two strong but seemingly separate interests in consumer protection (protecting people from fraud, predatory loans, unscrupulous data brokers, etc) and working with immigrant communities (because I find their stories so inspiring). I am trying to find some way to use my career to work on both these things.

I also love bicycles, cooking, running and swimming.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I bicycled across most of the US with a friend in 2009. It was incredibly challenging and awe-inspiring at the same time.

Also, watching the sun set from an island in the middle of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
