About Me


Cross a few tectonic plates without sweating. Chew on metaethics. Find a surplus of soulmates.


I just graduated from the University of Michigan and now am trying to get to a TESL job in Fuzhou, China starting in September. Obviously the most efficient way to do this is to spend all of my measly savings criss-crossing Europe and then taking the Transibberian railroad to Beijing. I like to rough it but appreciate all forms of comfort and kindness. I speak Alright Mandarin and Ok Spanish. I can dance. hard. sortof.


Life has no rules. This is due to a plenitude of meaning, not a lack thereof.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This summer is my first venture into the CS community. For all that I receive, I hope to pass on to others with interest. Global friendliness must be aggressively spread!


I have slept on numerous couches, floors and good ol piles of dirt through my travels. Providing a place to sleep to those that are wary is a wonderful gift of trust and friendliness and one that I try to honor graciously.


philosophy, playing soccer, drawing, walking stupidly long distances, (calm) debate, second languages, SCIENCE, acting a fool. Novel activities.
