About Me

Just an architect who loves good conversation about other cultures and languages as much as exploring. In the past few years I spent time living in Santiago, Rome, and Shanghai before landing in Chicago. Now that I'm settled, I miss the unknown of traveling. Help me pretend I'm still on the road?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Playing Whac-A-Mole on the metro can only tech you so much about a place. To truly get to know somewhere, interaction with locals is key. I've been on the other end of the equation and taught by locals; now it's my turn to give back.

Interests

I enjoy wandering to find hidden gems, exploring, and trying new food while traveling. When I'm able to, I enjoy rowing, hiking, and being outside. Last, but not least, I lean toward the introverted end of the spectrum and appreciate time to recharge by reading or watching Netflix.
