About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn and grow

ABOUT ME

I make bad puns, talk about random things, and like building things. I'm a software engineer, a gamer, a builder, a photographer.

I like talking with interesting people and thinking about interesting things (the order depends on my current position on the extrovert/introvert spectrum respectively)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When I travelled through Europe, I had a great time surfing with Caspar in Berlin, Freddie in Paris, and Lucia in Dublin. CS made my trip so much more fun than if I had stayed in Hostels (which I did in my other cities)

I've also learned a bit about the science/art of photography and would love to teach others what I know (or share tips). Check out some of my best shots here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheerfulstoic/
