About Me


Washington DC or bust!


I'm a recent graduate of the University of Illinois and am looking for full time work in the D.C. area. I'm extremely active and spend most of my time outdoors (see interests). I like to discuss and debate on just about any topic, but only with open-minded people. What else? I'm the second of four boys, love animals, and play foursquare (the childrens' game) far too seriously.


I love to learn and to teach.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to meet interesting people and learn about DC. Can't host yet as I don't have a place, much less a free couch.


I recently joined the community on the advice of a good friend who had a great experience.


Sailing is my passion. Outdoors, I'm also into rock climbing, soccer, racquetball, tennis, hiking, camping, and biking. Indoors I read and play chess, cards, pool, and foosball. I love to learn languages.

Music, Movies, and Books

Not all that serious about music. For movies, a few favorites are The Fountain and Gladiator. For books, The Count of Monte Cristo and House of Leaves.
