About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the world, learn, and eat candy from every culture!

ABOUT ME

I was born on Long Island, and have spent most of my life there. I was fortunate enough to have parents who loved to travel, so in my childhood I've visited a lot of the United States, but not very many other countries. Now that I'm on my own, I want to take what time I have to experience the places and cultures of Asia, Australia, South America, and tons of other places!

PHILOSOPHY

I don't have any major personal philosophy; I want to have fun and do whatever makes me happy at the moment. Now that I've graduated from school, I feel like I need to see more of the world, so I want to travel and learn about different cultures.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted people a few times when I lived in San Francisco, and was hosted in Melbourne and Portland. I've attended a number of couchsurfing meetups, and I like to get involved with the couchsurfing community wherever I go!

Interests

Food, culture, and candy of the world. I love learning about the differences between different cultures, and absorbing the culture shock when traveling from place to place.

Music, Movies & Books

My favorite movies are Memento, The Game, and The Usual Suspects.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Climbing Mt. Fuji overnight and arriving at the top just in time for sunrise. It was freezing the whole way up, but when I finally saw the sun climb out from beyond the horizon, it was all worth it.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, Cayman Islands, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Korea, Republic of, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Japan, United States
