About Me


To do whatever Oprah tells me


Happiness without borders.


Make haste slowly.

Be passionate, but not obsessive.

Life should be an adventure.

When the people I like are happy, I'm happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've couchsurfed in the UK, I host, and I'm always down for any kind of party/event that's taking place amongst the local CS community. Let's make a plan and have some fun!


CouchSurfing has changed my life for the better.

As far as surfing somebody's couch, I've stayed in the UK, which was a wonderful experience. I also stayed on JoAnna's couch after her big birthday blow-out, but that was only one town over, so I'm not sure if it counts.


Music, running, comedy, art, cooking, eating, breathing, smiling.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a member of the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge ("the best in classic, cutting-edge, foreign, and art-house films"), but I'm also into Hollywood, though I think 3D is a gimmick that needs to go away. I like indie music (whatever that means...). I read a lot of Philip Roth and books about business.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Mysore Palace lit up at night like the world's largest Christmas tree.

Teach, Learn, Share

Urine is sterile. You can drink it!

I can also teach you how to pre-emptively judge someone based on their shoes if you'd like.
