About Me


I'm pretty laid back, adventurous, and rather sarcastic.
I love the spontaneity of traveling because you are truly living in the moment, meeting people, trying new foods, seeing amazing sights, and constantly learning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am well tuned into New York City and the dynamic underground music and art scenes. I love exploring the city so I can definitely let you know where to eat, what sights to see, or a variety of places to grab a drink!
