About Me


Adventures and healthcare.


Moved to Swaziland in May 2012.

I went to college in southern California. The weather was amazing, but I got tired of being stuck in traffic. So I moved back to my home town of Boston, MA, where I worked in an office for a few years.

Quit my job and moved to Swaziland, where I now work for a healthcare-focused NGO. I live in the countryside. Braais and hiking almost every weekend. It's awesome, and a huge change of pace.


The best things in life are stumbled upon at the side of a road.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Occasional surfer; occasional host; occasional meet-up. But it's been a while.


I had great experiences surfing while on a road trip in the west coast of the US. I went on a hike in Los Osos and a "Kinetic Sculpture Race in Arcata." I saw lots of cliffs, some seals, and some really, really big trees.


Traveling, hiking, sunshine, current events/politics, good beer, and meeting new people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Salvation Mountain and Slab City on a Saturday Night. Ask me about it; it was surreal.
