About Me

I love traveling, there's nothing better. This couchsurfing stuff sounds like a pretty sublime experience, so I'm putting my name out there and giving it a shot. I graduated from UB with degrees in Film Studies and Journalism, which won't give me a career, but it was fun. For right now, I'm embracing my youth and taking advantage of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've heard nothing but good things about couchsurfing, so I thought I would give it a try to see if it's for me.


Traveling, movies, sports, beer, food, music, friends, family.
