Join Couchsurfing to see Eugene’s full profile. It’s free!
Heeeey-o! Name's Eugene. I am a longtime Couchsurfer, former New Yorker, and language lover. After graduated from college in 2014 (degree is in Linguistics and Latin American Foreign Policy), I ended up working for a dental company as a Director of Recruitment at the Jersey Shore (weird, right?). During my time in New York, I hosted tons of couchsurfers, many of which have become life-long friends. Hoping to meet you too!
Wherever you are you are meant to be, whoever you meet you were meant to meet and wherever you go will give you something in return.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Now that I have this weird stressful job, I've made it my mission to travel to a different country once a month before I take off for graduae school. Every couchsurfer I have e v e r hosted has been so so much fun, kind and giving of themselves. Couchsurfing 4 ever!
Meeting new people, learning about their languages, eating foods from their country, drinking coffee, listening to all sorts of music, taking lots and lots of photos (film and digital), seeing different parts of different cities, showing people new things, relaxing ambiance, throwing soirees, sleeping in very late, seeing live performances, Beyonce, aliens, spooky stuff, stars, juicing, 24 hour pizza places, beer gardens, fried chicken, yoga, steel drums, saucy hip movement, playing instruments, accents and new ever-lasting friendships!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
From studying languages I have a really good understanding of what people are TRYING to say and the various barriers they face with second language learning.
