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 graduated college May '14 studying philosophy. The following summer I biked down the Pacific Coast and then landed a job in the Bay. I loved Berkeley on my bike tour so I decided to move here.


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

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