About Me

East Coaster living in the City of Trees and Ph.Ds in graduate school to get that final degree before becoming a professor. Musician, cultural critic, philosopher, religious scholar and lover of quality coffee, beer and single malt whiskey.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet fellow travelers, share my understanding of the world, find amazing hidden local spots, and amazing live music.


Guitar, snowboarding, running. Enjoys bar crawls, craft beer and single malt whiskey. Hiking and rock climbing are my outdoor hobbies.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play guitar.
Ask me anything about religion, philosophy. Since I'm doing a Ph.D in religious studies, I can be that resource to ask your wildest questions on any religious tradition in the world, without the fear of being judged.
I can also share what it's really like growing up as a Jersey boy.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My cheerful personality and wealth of knowledge. How to properly do a beer tasting. I can also teach you some Korean if you'd like!
