About Me

22 years old, born and raised in the NYC-metro area, packed up and moved to Southeast Asia after graduating university. I really like eating.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is the best way I've found to travel -- have had great experiences hosting and surfing. I'm not looking for luxury when I travel (although I'm not opposed to it), I want the local experience. Show me your favorite place to grab a beer, the foods I need to try, and anything else you think I should see!

I've surfed in Stockholm, Vienna, Copenhagen, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Taipei, and hosted when I lived in NYC. Traveling all of April but once I'm back in BKK I will be able to host again!

Interests

Food is number one. Beyond that, my interests are all over the place. Music, art, history, American football, psychology, philosophy, queer theory, Native American culture, Ancient Roman history, et al. Mostly food, though.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach me a foreign language, I'll help you out with your English (I can try to help with your Italian, Latin, or Thai--but English is the safest bet). Ask me where to go in NYC or BKK. Tell me the best food you've ever eaten. I'll show you a small shrine hidden in Bangkok devoted to penises. Show me the coolest view of your city. I'll tell you my favorite ghost stories. Share your wifi password with me.

What I Can Share With Hosts

A good laugh? Profound words of wisdom? Booze?
