About Me


To enjoy Minneapolis and to do work I can be proud of. And to go to Europe.


I'm a biological modeler working for Novartis in Cambridge, MA. My main hobbies right now are learning the Ukulele and trying to do yoga and meditate everyday, but it usually works out to every other day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


With processa in New Orleans. She was awesome and incredibly nice and it was a blast. I made it there before the flood and I was really happy to see she made it back and is doing well. And, with Justin and Vonnie here in Minneapolis. They are just really great hosts and we've remained friends now that I moved here.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The island of Kauai is just awesome. It's absolutely beautiful, and people were so friendly and its the only place I've ever been that really felt magical. I can't explain why this should be, but it seemed like if you ever wanted or needed something, it would just turn up.

Firefly, a pre-burningman festival in the woods in VT is incredible, too.
