About Me


To make new friends in the DC area and the world.


I just moved to Arlington from NYC. I'm interested in making new friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Heloisa and I can host parties and provide a couch.


Heloisa and I hosted quite a few couchsurfers and we couchsurfed together in San Francisco and Tokyo. I also couchsurfed in Delft.
