About Me


to Listen! always


I am friendly, adventurous, and a huge music lover!


Oh man. It's actually very simple: live life in the Nosebleed Section. (excellent song by the Hilltop Hoods.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Down to meet up in NYC, Cape Cod, Paris-- wherever I am! Hosting is tricky since I'm living in a dorm, but I've stayed on couches before as well!


I've met up with some really cool people through couchsurfing- most recently in Montreal at the Co-op sur genereux. They were an incredible group of people who really opened my eyes to a totally different way of experiencing the world. My friends and I also met up with an awesome couple who provided us with breakfast and a walking tour of their neighborhood!


Really into music and radio and travel and cool people

Music, Movies, and Books

Charles Mingus, Mavis Staples, Bessie Smith, Odetta, Skip James, Robert Johnson, Jason DeRulo, Janelle Monae, Beck, the Velvet Underground, the Beta Band, Gnarls Barkley, literally anything Danger Mouse has ever made, I dig Breakbot and Fatboy Slim and C2C most recently, also very much a fan of Kool & the Gang and Teddy Wilson. That's a little sampler.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Camping on the Great Wall of China. Can't be beat.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am actually pretty good at origami. Also chinese dumplings-- jiaozi. Getting better at making radio. I believe strongly in the importance of listening, as an act.
