About Me


to build a world wide network of contacts!


My biggest fault is being a little shy when I first meet someone, but after I get to know them, I think I'm pretty cool to be around. I like to go out and have fun, but it usually takes a bit at first to get me in the mood. Perhaps I'm just a late night person. I'm not usually one to break the ice either.

I haven't had much surfing experience, only hosting, although I'd like to change that.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wrote a professional mathematics paper and presented it at an International Conference in Montreal, Canada.

I attended Barack Obama's first inauguration.

I sang the national anthem before a Washington Nationals game (MLB) once.

I sang back-up for Margaret Chou at the National Theater in Washington, D.C.

I was on the stage behind George W. Bush when he announced his initial presidential campaign run. (it was a favor for my friend when I was in college) The benefit for me was that I got to meet Cokie Roberts.

I sang on the same stage as Lady Gaga at the National Marriage Equality rally in Washington, DC. (My picture is from there)

I attended a world premier of an opera and had a friend in the cast.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can offer space for 4 people as well as free wifi. I have towels to use as well as some bedding for about two people. Additional people will require more bedding.
