About Me

I'm an aspiring world traveler looking to add a few stamps to my passport. I've had the pleasure of visiting Europe and South America and the Caribbean, and am perpetually planning my next trip. I look forward to meeting new people during my travels, in whatever capacity, as I recently came to realize that one thing I yearn for in life is a sense of community. Also, I have accepted a job out out of state and have moved out of my apartment as of September 1st, and am living with my father for the next couple of months to save up on money, therefore I am currently unable to host. I am more than willing to meet you and treat you to a drink, guy or girl, and show you around Washington if you'd like.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As I wrote, I want to meet new people, and get a better sense of local living during my travels. And why lie? Its easier on the pocket.
