About Me


To have as much fun as humanly possible!


I am originally from Upstate New York, but have been living in boston for the last 3-4 years. I am currently traveling through the UK and Europe on my way to spend about a year in New Zealand. I plan on participating in the WOOFing program while abroad, but would really like to get as much travel in as possible.


To wake up every morning grateful for the opportunities I will have throughout the day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I currently do not have a couch, but as soon as I have one it will be available to anyone on CS.


I am totally new to CS, I really love the concept of it, and I hope to have great experiences in the near future.


I really love food, like in an obsessive kind of way. I went to culinary school and have worked in the service industry for about 9 years. There is no food that I wont eat, although I'm sure saying that here will get me into some trouble abroad! I really like to go to museums and learn new things everyday. Its really hard for me to specify my interests because there are few things that I am not interested in.

  • culture
  • dining
  • cooking
  • traveling
  • agriculture

Music, Movies, and Books

I havent seen too many movies recently, but back in the States I was a bit of a movie buff... not sure I could still hold my own though.
I am open to basically any kind of music, not terribly fond of heavy metal or country (with the exception of bluegrass and folk)
Living out of a rucksack has limited my reading options, but I brought along Trainspotting, and One Flew Over The Cukoos Nest

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While in Dubai I went dune crashing in the desert and got up close and personal with some wild camels

Teach, Learn, Share

Sharing: I would love to leave the houses that I stay at with little cooking tips. I know a lot of random things that might help you along if you get onto Jeopardy too!
Learning: I would really love to soak in some culture while I'm out and about, if anyone can teach me about agriculture and sustainability that would be pretty awesome.
