Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I haven't been very active in the last year, but I'd like to change that. In the past I've surfed a lot of couches, met a bunch of great people, and hosted a few awesome surfers too!
Only good ones!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Survived a sandstorm in the Western Sahara - a little scary but very cool! (I still can't believe how sand dust was able to get into EVERYTHING we had with us.)
Teach, Learn, Share
I can answer just about any question you have on modern and contemporary German and Central European history. Or at least I'm supposed to be able to ;-)
What I Can Share with Hosts
Now back in my hometown, I can show you all the cool places in Cambridge and Somerville. (But don't ask me anything about Boston: as a true Cantabridgian, you have to drag me kicking and screaming across the river! :-P )
