About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fun, Adventurous, and Spontanious. Plus I almost never say no, and I will try anything at least twice.

ABOUT ME

I am a New Yorker with a deep love for my home city. Ask anyone that has ever had to pass through with me and they will tell you I am passionate about showing people the best that New York City has to offer. But I also like to travel myself, and I hope to meet people that are just as passionate about the places they live. I am a long distance runner, I am a chemist, and I love to do things for the sake of doing them.

PHILOSOPHY

I almost never say no, and I will try anything at least twice.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If you would like to chat prior to potentially surfing in Brooklyn, I have skype :-)

I am also trying to learn German. So if you don't mind helping me practice I would be really appreciative. I really want to travel in Germany some more and be able to talk to all my German friends!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

About a year ago my friend was hosting an Australian girl, and I became good friends with her (and some of her friends she also met through couch surfing). I love to make connections with new and interesting people, and they recognized my flare for travel and suggested I try it.

I have surfed across Europe, and host in Brooklyn, New York.

Interests

Science, Baseball, Soccer, Football, Running, Bicycling, Nature, History, Drinking, Partying, and a taste for exotic and new foods!

Anything fun, new, and exciting!

Music, Movies & Books

Music - The Sounds, Metric, Beatles, Billy Idol, David Bowie, Third Eye Blind

Books - 'Gun, Germs and Steel', Shakespeare, Kurt Vonnegut, The Master and Margarita, many history books

Movies - Rushmore, Zoolander, silly movies, serious movies, and movies with action.

In general I like just about anything

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once took a raft down much of the Mekong River in Laos for 4 days and 3 nights. I lived with the native hill tribe people at night and through my interpreter got to learn much about the kind of life they had and stories they told. It is a part of the world that is still so far away from my everyday life, and it gives me drive to find everything in between.

Teach, Learn, Share

Maybe my approach to life? I don't know.

Countries I've Visited

Cambodia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Netherlands, Poland, Thailand
