About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a college student trying to fulfill my infinite hopes and dreams (including seeing the world) with very finite resources.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If you're coming to visit I'd love to host you and/or show you around the city, and I'd appreciate the same if I were the visitor!

Interests

Night photography, beach volleyball, food, travelling, exploring speakeasies in NYC, meeting new people, and i'm probably missing quite a few here.

Music, Movies & Books

Dr Strangelove is one of my favorite movies. That, and V for Vendetta. I used to watch Jackie Chan's films back when he did his own stunts too.

I love Linkin Park, EDM, Japanese house music and Broadway soundtracks.

I also love Sherlock Holmes - the books, the movies and Sherlock (the British TV show). Not Elementary (the CBS knockoff) though.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Bungee jumping and white-water rafting in Costa Rica.

Walking the streets of Cuba and marveling at the juxtaposition of Oldsmobiles and Chevrolet's from the 1960's alongside new Hyundais and Mercedes-Benz cars on the roads, admiring the diverse architecture, walking into restaurants, shops or other little dens of capitalism that people set up inside their houses, and getting a fresh glass of sugar cane juice for USD0.02 in the back alleys of Havana.

Traveling on the roads of Vietnam. If you've been there, you know what I mean - cars, scooters, motorcycles, bikes, trishaws, people and cows share the same road. All of whom want to go in different directions.

Joining Improv Everywhere in NYC for their improv pranks and stuff. You meet new people and have fun doing stupid stuff while brightening up the lives of New Yorkers.

Oh wait, was it supposed to be ONE amazing thing? Oops.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a bit about good food (cheap and expensive)and rooftop bars around the City. I bartend for private events and love cocktails and mixology and exploring New York's bars. I also love the concept of speakeasies and will probably try to convince you to visit one.

For anything else, you can be the teacher.
