About Me


Intensifying my aesthetic experience in healthy ways. Building a foundation for me to launch projects related to social justice and environmentalism.

(I do not have a Facebook to connect with Couchsurfing. If you want further verification I am happy to Skype with you or provide other references. Thanks!)


I just graduated college this last May studying philosophy. Last summer I biked from Canada to Mexico. Summer before that I traveled around Western Europe. I'm getting ready to move to the Bay Area to start a new career.


I think all things should be handled pragmatically with the exception of aesthetic experience. In my home, finances, career, and politics I'll act with moderation, but in regards to my higher senses I will dance sybaritically.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I cannot house anyone as I'm moving, but once I situate I will open my home to couchsurfers.


I've couchsurfed in Tucson and Prague. Both were wonderful experiences and I am highly grateful.
