About Me

I am political organizer and student working on studying Transnational Organized Crime. I live in an intentional community and am definitely a social creature. I am always looking for whats exciting different or weird in the world . I am a firm believer in the universal goodness of humanity and sharing cultures

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Staying with people gives you an authentic experience, it is amazing how many incredible coach serfers there are out there. The people I have met traveling or have hosted on my travels will always have a special place in my heart!


I love all types of music. I play the guitar very badly and also play the Ukulele. I am a classically trained singer but also love blues and jazz.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love People of the Book by Gwendolyn Brooks, anything by Huraki Murakami or Kurt Vonnegutt, The Devil in the White City, Jane Eyre, The Alchemist.

I really love all music but lately I'm feeling West African Strings, like Gnawa, or Funk always makes me happy. I really like Fugues because its like clock work. Im also pretty fluent in Jewish Cantoral singing and Klezmer. French Impressionist Piano sings my soul song.

I am a big fan of Wes Anderson, its cliche I know. I watch a lot of B horror films. The Fall is an incredible movie, The Bands Visit, The Educators, Pride are all other favorites

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once offended the Prince of Bhutan while volunteering at a Folk Festival. I noticed one of the archers started giving me strange looks as he walked by me, I thought it was strange but did not linger on it long. Someone later told me I had upset the Prince by not raising as he stood but no one told me!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can make a meal really fast out of almost anything!
