About Me

I'm currently a student in the United States. Inside the classroom I study math and engineering in a community of professors and other students. Outside the classroom, I learn in a much larger community made up of all those I encounter. Travel and adventure are my ways of connecting to others and the natural world. I love being outside, and can usually be found riding a skateboard, snowboard, or surfboard. I'm a supporter of learning through firsthand experience. I believe that the best part of my life story is written in the company of others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm here to learn through different perspectives. I believe life is about constantly seeking out and appreciating new perspectives, and letting it challenge your own view of the world. The best way to do this is by sharing experiences with others. I want to know how others see the world differently, what their passions are, why they wake up in the morning, and what brought them to where they are now. Bottom line, I'm on Couchsurfing to let others' experiences influence, inform, and brighten my own experience in this world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent the past summer leading middle school students on adventure and service trips throughout northern California. The amazing part was seeing how nature, service, and travel can challenge and shape the lives of teenagers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about some beautiful ideas from mathematics, which are probably way cooler than the math you learned in school (Did you know there's multiple sizes of infinity?!)

I'd like to learn whatever you're willing to teach. Whether it's the difference between a crocodile and an alligator or how to compare apples and oranges, I'm happy to listen. I'd also love to learn about your home and how you came to be where you are

Share: stories, opinions, knowledge, laughs, recipes, music, meals, advice, wisdom

Some good laughs, excitement for the outdoors, my own perspectives on the world
