About Me

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest United States (Portland and Seattle). Lived in Tokyo for 4 years, and then 6 months in Hungary. Now I'm in Vancouver, Canada working on my PhD. Hope to live a few more places around the world after I finish.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing was there for me when I needed an escape after a particularly bad breakup, and I took a mini-trip up to Vancouver, Canada. I've been hooked ever since (though I go up and down with how active I am on here).


Sports and exercise. Travel. Meeting awesome people. Good beer. Good food. Conversation. Language. Culture.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moving to Tokyo and starting my life from scratch; repeating that process in Hungary, and now in Canada. Hope to do continue this in more countries in the future.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, Romania, Slovakia, South Korea, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Canada, Hungary, Japan, United States
