About Me


Meet cool people


I recently quit my software development job in Madison. I'm making plans to travel a bit and visit some friends in North America and Europe. I enjoy music, particularly indie/experimental rock, '80s Punk, and some rap. I play guitar and go to lots of shows. Madison also has many beautiful bike paths that I frequent. I've been a Quaker all my life, if that means anything to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm fairly new to the couchsurfing community. I went to a couple local gatherings in Madison, and I've had good experiences surfing in Montreal and Lille, France. I'm looking forward to meeting more couchsurfers soon.


Listening to and playing music, casually biking or walking around while I think, enjoying the company of friends, math/physics/logic, reading

I normally play guitar, but I just got a ukulele that I'm traveling right now.
