About Me


Meet new people. Learn new languages. Explore Cultures.


I coordinate education programming for refugees and asylees at Catholic Charities' Refugee Resettlement Office (despite my employer's religious leanings, I'm actually a very atheist, but open person). I recently completed my masters at NYU in International Education, specializing in education in development and conflict contexts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to meet travelers, all sorts of ex-pats settled in NYC, and New Yorkers of all walks of life.


Hosted and visited couches a bit here and there. Most of my experience has been in attending couchsurfing (or related) events/parties/outings.
