About Me


To see the world and meet people.


I'm a pretty laid back person I suppose. I love travel and new experiences. My biggest hobbies are playing guitar, basketball, chess and american politics.


Enjoy life. Treat others well. Love and be loved.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


eh, I'm always so last minute when I travel I usually just end up meeting for coffee. I've offered a couch before but due to living in bubble-fuck-nowhere, USA I got no takers.


I stayed with a chill girl Gabriel in Nanning, China a month or two ago. pretty good time- we stole beer from a japanese restaurant ate street food lost and found my bag.


guitar, basketball, chess, american politics(don't worry I'm progressive!), funny shit, understanding what happens in the meadow at dusk....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time with some friends we went down the Hudson River with just our bathingsuits, sandals and a lifejacket. It was a great time with periods of high addrenalin pumping when going through rapids and peaceful periods just floating along. I think if I had to have one day stuck on repeat that day would be in the running.

-Recently, I swam (or "swum") with elephants!
