About Me


Live an epic year before starting medical school in fall of 2015. Goals: Learn Spanish, Ski 100 days, climb mountains


I am a 25 year old American who now calls Berkeley, California home. While I'm now a bit more tied down with medical school than I have been previously I don't think I'll ever shake the wanderlust that's inspired my travel in Central and South America, Nepal, and Europe.


"The mountains are calling and I must go."
-John Muir

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I wish I could currently host but my current living situation with 5 roommates in small house doesn't really make that possible.


I am a CouchSurfing novice.
