About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn as much as possible from the awesome people on this site

ABOUT ME

I am learning how to make buildings and how to read books at a school in central Texas. I am way obsessed with architecture and daydream about seeing all the beautiful places in the world - this site seems like and awesome way to make that happen. I'm 20, gay, vegetarian, like electronic music, and am an art history nerd. I tend to be pretty quiet/shy (I'm a good listener!), but open up for the right conversation.
Sorry I don't have many pictures of myself in my travels. I'm usually behind the camera!

PHILOSOPHY

"Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration."
- Frank Herbert

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surf a little - surf a lot! I've been on a couch (at home) for the past year so I haven't had a chance to host yet.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed 3 couches in Scandinavia and fell in love with this community of amazing people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Too many moments to list... My favorite story though? The night I accidentally locked my friend and myself out of his Manhattan apartment, leaving us to wander the island till the landlord could bring another key all the way from Long Island... I promise if you host me I will not do this to you! I've learned my lesson.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can talk about architecture pretty well and can be quite long-winded on the topic of art history and music.
