About Me


Connecting like-minded people


I've lived in the New York area all my life, now I have moved to Gainesville. Since I'm new here I love having new people around to help explore with.

I work a great deal - so couchsurfing has been a great way to meet new people, especially when I don't have time to travel the world, the world can come to me.

I'm a vegetarian for a decade. That said, I consider myself to be a foodie and I love to cook.

I'm a devout Mets fan, and love baseball.


I like creating new things. I'm passionate about what I do, helping others and having a sense of humor about things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've attended several local CS events, just hosted my first CSer (and it's a great experience!), and started the Eastern Long Island group when I lived out there.

I plan on surfing myself in the near future.


I've been to group events, started a group, and hosted.


Independent film, seeing bands in Brooklyn, gardening, vegetarian cooking, occasional video games, day trips, spending time with friends and my usual antics and shenanigans.
