About Me

Some quick notes for potential surfers: (Updated October 2015)
- Please only request for up to two weeks away from current date
- Please mention your favorite book in your reply so I know you read at least some of my profile



I am abroad in Lisbon for 3 months, getting to know the people, culture and sites. During the day I work from home, and at night I try to explore the city. I have an apartment with extra couches.

About me:
I'm a native New Yorker who recently quit my job to start my own software consulting company so that I can work from anywhere in the world.

My interest in travel and Couchsurfing came after I took my first trip abroad to Italy, France, and Spain in 2010. As a software engineer I think couchsurfing makes great use of technology to bring people together.

As far as my personality goes, I am fairly laid back and open minded. I always like to get other people's perspectives on things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people, experience different cultures and to help people with a comfortable place to stay.


Exploring the city, finding interesting people and places, the beach, walks, hockey, photography, nightlife, comedy, concerts

I work in technology so lots of things related to this including web development, application development, social networking, and keeping up on new technologies.

My other major hobby is guitar. I like to play a wide variety of music from rock to Spanish folk music. I am still a beginner.

Music, Movies, and Books

-Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Say Anything, The Format, Panic at the Disco, New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Saves the Day, Fallout Boy, The Postal Service, Head Automatica, Jack Johnson, Kanye West, JayZ, MJ, assorted rap, Gypsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert and assorted Spanish folk

Basically, I'm open to all types.

Movies: Wall Street, Anchorman, Training Day, Waynes World... anything from comedies to action.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I visited Colombia I got the chance to rappel down a waterfall and go cave diving all in the same weekend... it was quite an experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak Spanish, so I could teach you some.

I am also very good with computers, so feel free to bring your broken laptop to me! On my last trip I helped a host fix her old laptop.

I know the basics of guitar and the main chords. I'd be glad to show you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good conversation over a beer, some of the local tips.
