About Me

I'm a 22 year old graduate of American University. I grew up in the Hudson Valley region of New York about an hour and a half north of New York City. I am the middle child of three with an older brother, a younger brother and two parents. I am open-minded not opinionated and I am a very curious person.

I play guitar and write my own acoustic music. I love to read, write and draw and engage in all things that expand the mind. I love the outdoors, hiking, swimming, cliff jumping, camping. etc. I am athletic and intelligent. I appreciate eastern philosophy/spirituality because of the emphasis on universal compassion and a present attention to this life we are living. I like having fun even if it means going outside the bounds of what is considered orderly and normal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Willing to host guests in Boulder, Colorado.


I love coffee, hiking, swimming, climbing trees, playing guitar, reading and having good conversations. I have an interest in eastern spirituality.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gave a speech in front of 2000 people at high school graduation

Teach, Learn, Share

" I don't like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and it isn't of much value. Life hasn't revealed its beauty to them."

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
