About Me


Live, learn, and laugh about it?


I've just arrived in Cape Town from San Francisco, where I've been working as a management consultant since finishing up grad school. I'll be here for four months, working for a very cool non-profit and exploring Cape Town and South Africa in general as much as possible!

I'd love to meet new people with similar interests, especially those more familiar with the city!


Optimism is the name of the game :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Little to no experience to date, but I'm excited to get involved.


Traveling (of course), exploring new places, drinking caffeinated beverages, running around outdoors, attempting to surf and play tennis, learning and practicing languages other than English, cooking and/or eating elaborate meals with friends, sustainable development and social entrepreneurship, and doing things I've never done before: hang-gliding off Table mountain, running a triathlon (or at least another half-marathon), and learning to dance some samba (definitely the biggest challenge) are all on the to-do list.

Music, Movies, and Books

Big fan of music of all types, including electronic, alternative, hip hop....I'd love to catch some live music here.

Enjoy fiction (Game of Thrones?) and non-fiction (Born to Run, economics-related books like Blink, etc.)
