About Me

Midwest transplant to the east coast. I'm a big fan of anything outdoorsy, exploring in general, and music. I'm a PhD student in Physics but I'm taking a break for the summer to do an internship. In my spare time I love learning new things in general and in particular I love learning languages. I have trouble finding time for it these days but I also like to mess around with playing the guitar a bit. I'm also pretty into biking and fitness in general and do my best to stay active.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've done a bit of hosting and also some surfing


I have hosted a few couch surfers and also did some couch surfing of my own on a bike trip from Boston to Portland, Maine.


I just finished the second year of a PhD program in Physics. I'm pretty interested in music and am trying to learn to play guitar. I also enjoy biking and hope to bike from coast to coast one day. I'd also love to go on some short bike trips around the area this summer if anyone is interested!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably the craziest thing I've ever done was I once took a bus to New York with two of my friends and we brought nothing with us but our return bus tickets and stayed there for the weekend. It was very fun and I'm glad I did it but at the same time it was quite exhausting.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you plenty of random things about math and physics. I'm not completely fluent but I could definitely teach you a good deal about Spanish and Portuguese. I would love to get more practice with my Spanish and Portuguese and I'm currently trying to learn German too!
