About Me

I live in Philadelphia and I work at University of Pennsylvania. I'm on Couchsurfing because I think its super cool. My first Couchsurfing experience was in the West Bank where I stayed for a week and it was incredibly eye opening. From that moment I knew that I could learn a lot from being a part of this community.

If you are going to request to stay, please tell me a little about yourself and the reason for your visit. Also, I usually prefer requests for 2 or 3 nights max, at least to start. After that if you need to stay longer it could definitely be an option

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy bringing other people into my home and showing them my city from my perspective. Likewise, it is nice to see other's perspectives on the places that they live. I try to travel whenever possible. I keep a map of every place that I have ever been and update it whenever I see somewhere new, even if it is just a small village.

I spent a week in Irbid, Jordan visiting and interviewing Syrian refugees, recording their stories on video.

(OK, that was two)
