About Me


Living the Dream


I love hosting and meeting new people. I go out of my way to make sure you have a good time during your visit and like to include you in my plans and show you around. If you want to do your own thing or are just passing through, that is cool too.


Strong believer in inclusion and treating others as you would like to be treated and go above and beyond what people expect.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love hosting travelers and showing my new friends around Cleveland. Think of me as an ambassador to Cleveland.


I've met up with CS'ers at the weekly meetup in Budapest and it was really fun and made my Budapest experience. I also had a complete blast staying with Ajay and Nandan when I was visting Mumbai, India. Staying with locals and having an instant friend in a new city makes all the difference.
