About Me


Promote understanding, trust, and a sense of adventure


Hey there! I'm a former CS host in Manhattan. I work in real estate. I'm always out and about, going to shows, running in the park, boating, sailing, surfing, or going to new restaurants or bars.

I'm a healthy eater and I'm into fitness. I do bikram (hot) yoga and I've run 2 marathons. I'm also into anything outdoorsy (hiking, rock-climbing, ski trips, etc).

I like traveling because I like putting myself in other peoples' shoes. I like learning other languages and customs, and like to practice my spanish or french.

I've been to Spain, France, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Mali (Africa), Beijing, London, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Italy, Germany, India, Nepal, Thailand, Japan, and Singapore, Hong Kong


Sugarland got it right with "I ain't settling for anything less than everything". I want a taste of everything, from the high life, to the many social issues of the world. You cannot judge what you don't understand. I always welcome new perspectives.

I have a work hard, play hard mentality. Though success means nothing if you don't give back too, which is why I like to volunteer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted many people in the past, but cannot currently host (and exception being former hosts and guests). I try to reach out to local CS'ers when I travel, even if it's just to meet for an afternoon.


I lived in a hostel when I first moved to NY. I heard about this site from my friend who owned the hostel and decided to bring the world to my doorstep and start hosting. I still keep in touch with some of my guests.
