Join Couchsurfing to see Ian’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a student from Philly living in Pittsburgh full time now. I study mechanical engineering, logic, and design. I'm into making things with my hands, spending time outdoors, and exploring new ideas. If you like eating, laughing, or telling stories I'm sure we'll get along fine.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I surfed all over Europe and had a great experience everywhere I went. I think meeting people and sharing experiences is the best part of traveling. Now that I'm mostly staying in one place, I'm more than happy to pay back some of the hospitality I've received.
Pretty much any outdoor sport. Climbing, backpacking, kayaking, skiing, whatever.
Food. It's one of my favorite parts of travelling
I'm a big reader. No genre in particular, just anything that's good.
I know it's cliche, but really my friends and family. I think the people you're with are what determine your quality of life.
And, of course, travel
- outdoor activities
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Taking a one way flight to croatia with no plan, timeline, or company.
Teach, Learn, Share
I always enjoy teaching/helping people to make stuff. I don't have much of a shop at the moment, but if you're interested we can whip out some chisels or fire up my mini-forge and try a few things out.
