About Me

I'm finishing my second year on extended leave from graduate school (also at my alma mater). Couchsurfing seems like a cool way to meet people and travel cheaply, so I decided to give it a shot!

I was a foreign-exchange student in Germany during high school, but I wanted to take too many classes here in the states to take my quarter abroad during college--something I do regret! I'm planning a trip to North Carolina and the east coast for 2016, but I want to wander much further.

Find me in the Bay Area if you're looking. Otherwise, happy travels.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm primarily looking for safe and clean workspaces while I travel as a student or research fellow. In the future I will consider accepting guests, but for now I'd like to use it as a couchsurfer.


My favorite things to do include reading, running, cycling, cooking, drawing, and writing. I try to dabble in a lot of different stuff. This year I've been learning Central African dance, and I used to play Japanese Taiko drums. On a rainy day I'm more than happy to curl up with a movie or TV show.

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything by Thomas Pynchon, Richard Linklater, Tarantino, Cormac McCarthy. Too many others to name.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed to the top of the Cologne Cathedral.

Teach, Learn, Share

I research the history of billboards and outdoor advertising in the United States. I won't give a long-winded explanation of my work here, but I hope to publish it when ready.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I like to help out and have a good time.
