Trek across Northern Ireland
Hello! I am a very friendly fellow who loves to travel the world, meet new people, and eat new foods. I look forward to meeting you!
Currently I am working through my MA in International Relations here in Boston. I have a particular focus on space law, post-colonial & decolonization theory, Marxism, and representation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Former host, try to meet surfers in Boston when I can.
I spread the awesomeness of Couchsurfing at every opportunity, from surfing when I travel to encouraging friends to utilize couchsurfing for traveling and community events.
Beginner surfer, surfed a bit in Europe and in Atlanta, it was wonderful, met some great people.
In the second half of 2014, I started hosting a few travelers - had a great time and looking forward hosting more travelers.
I live to learn about and explore the world.
On top of traveling and exploration I have a strong interest in subway/metro systems (I'm talking nerd level). I can give you a run down of all the systems I've been on and what works and what doesn't (see nerd, told ya)
Where ever I travel my favorite part is meeting people.
Oh how could I forget cafe pontificating, pub exploring, bare feet picnicking, and bookstore paruzzing
- pub crawls
Music, Movies, and Books
Music wise I am reeducating myself on the great rock of the 60/70s, some of my favorites include The Who, The Clash, and the Sex Pistols. The Arcade Fire, Guster, Real McKenzies, Flogging Molly, and the Beattles top out my favorites list. Movies wise I am a huge sucker for romantic comedies like Love Actually. Some of my all time favorites are Star Wars (the originals only), Persepolis and Airplane!.
My book shelf is filled with political and historical books (fitting my major), several distopian novels, some graphic novels (mostly political haha) and a very large collection of Star Wars books.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I attended President Obama's election night rally in Chicago in 2008. It was incredible, one of the best experiences of my life.
I hugged so many people that night, Chicagoans are friendly but not nearly as friendly as that night. That night, love and hope were the only two emotions in existence.
Teach, Learn, Share
Things I can share.....intimate knowledge of flying and riding metro systems and of the Star Wars universe. I am full of random bits of knowledge.
Life is about learning, from knowledge comes growth and understanding.
Oh and appelflap!
