About Me

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest United States (Portland and Seattle). Lived in Tokyo for 4 years, and now in Gyula, Hungary. Applying to PhD programs in Education. 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 a cheap escape after a particularly bad breakup, and I escaped for 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. Hope to do it again in another country someday soon.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Hungary, Japan, United States
