About Me


See all of Europe in 2 1/2 months--not in the sense of being a tourist, but rather in the sense of meeting people from all over in order to truly see what makes the continent what it is today


I am two years removed from college working in new york city. I enjoy people. I love to write. I love to read. I want to know everything there is to know about everything.


Everything happens for a reason.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I recently CouchSurfed Europe for seventy-four days, and now I'm hoping to return the favor in New York City.


At the beginning of my European travels, I met two couchsurfers from Poland, and in 15 minutes of conversation, the city of London became so much less cold. At the end of a person's travels, it's not the sights, but the people that will remain with you.


Music, running, writing, reading, trying new types of beer
