About Me


Replenish my travel funds


I recently finished a master's in global politics at the London School of Economics, and now I'm working in socially responsible investment research in Boston. I like nightclubs. I am gay. I practice yoga. I like to read but don't devote enough time to it. I can quote every line from pretty much any episode of "Friends". I've read most of the Harry Potter books 20-ish times.


"To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation." - Yann Martel (I guess if I'm quoting someone, it's not a personal philosophy is it?)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think couchsurfing is great. I surfed once in Paris and I'm looking to expand my experiences with this site.


I couchsurfed for the first time with my best friend in Paris on his suggestions, and it was a great experience!
