About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much of the world as I can before getting married and having a family.

ABOUT ME

Not too long ago, I had an awesome job working in TV. But when the day came where I started to hate it, I quit and went backpacking through Europe. That's when I discovered couchsurfing. I still work in TV and film and love every minute of it.

My favorite things to do in the city are go to concerts, run (half and full marathons), try new foods and see new things. I also love to read, see indie films and drink lots of coffee. It's hard for me to host at the moment with so many roommates and a busy work schedule, but I make an effort to meet up with CSers and show them around as much as I can.

Living in NYC is fast paced and a lot of fun, but can also be very stressful. My favorite part of traveling is not having access to a working cell phone and taking time to relax.

PHILOSOPHY

Success is never final; failure is rarely fatal.

Remember, even in the future, the sweet is never as sweet without the sour.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfed all over Europe and will be back. Right now I will host when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surprisingly normal. But NYC by far has the creepiest and rudest message board of anywhere I've seen.

Interests

Travel (surprise!), Music, Coffee, Writing, Running, Movies, meeting new people and taking chances.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies!
Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights), the Coen Brothers (Fargo, Raising Arizona) and Wes Anderson (Darjeeling Limited, Grand Budapest Hotel). Other favorites include Almost Famous, Blow, Tropic Thunder, A History of Violence and American Beauty

TV!
Curb Your Enthusiasm, Six Feet Under, Rescue Me, Ricky Gervais' series, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I appreciate all genres from hard rock and metal (in all its wonderful forms), punk, house/electronica, folk, bluegrass and classical. My favorite acts are Muse, Flogging Molly, Social Distortion, Foo Fighters, Kamelot, Green Day, The Decemberists and Daft Punk.

I used to be obsessed with pop music because it was literally part of my job. Thank God that's over.

My favorite Scandinavian artists are Nightwish (the Tarja Era), Sonata Arctica, The Rasmus, Opeth, Korpiklaani and Turisas. Once you meet me, you will understand why this section is important.

My favorite authors include Hunter S. Thompson, Hubert Selby Jr (Requiem For A Dream, Last Exit to Brooklyn), Milan Kundera (Unbearable Lightness of Being) and Miranda July.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went to Kolkata (formerly spelled Calcutta), India for work on a travel show in the fall of 2010. Being in such a poverty stricken area was a humbling, eye-opening experience that I will never forget. I now have a greater appreciation for my life and truly feel blessed.

Locally, I ran a race to the top of the Empire State Building. After 86 flights of steps, I reached the top, received a medal and looked out over New York City feeling stronger than ever.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot about music, movies and Brooklyn. I'm also an outrageous coffee snob and proud of it.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I will absolutely offer hosts a place to stay in New York City anytime they want to come. I have done it before and look forward to doing it again.

I have plenty of stories and insights which I promise will not be terribly boring and know a lot about music and movies and have plenty recommendations there too. I always buy my host a drink or two and sometimes a meal for their generosity. I full believe in giving back as much as I can to anyone gracious enough to host.
