About Me


Meet everyone, see and enjoy the world, and exchange positive memes


Andrew is a professional ballroom dancer and instructor, and helps support his dance habit working as a software engineer.


Small goals produce only small worries.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I "hosted" in a low-request suburb of Boston for a year or two, and got complacent. Then I moved to San Francisco, and WOW do we see more traffic here! Which is awesome, but can be a little overwhelming.


I've surfed a couple of times through the project, and countless times outside it. Now I host when I can, and I've been meeting awesome people!


Ballroom dance, technology, rock climbing and other outdoor activities, acro-yoga, self-improvement, eccentric and eclectic conversations about life and politics, and exploring the rest of the world.

Oh yeah, and music. It's like breathing, sometimes you forget about it.

Music, Movies, and Books

An exhaustive list would be exhausting. I'm very adventurous with both music and books, but have woefully behind on movies for the past few years.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nothing quite compares to Torres del Paine.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not wild about proscribing this; CS seems much more about spontaneity to me. I teach ballroom, and I'm a pretty solid cook, but I'd be shocked if that's what you end up remembering.
