About Me




I am an American now living in Germany am just finished may Masters degree. I absolutely love it here and am probably going to stay on this continent.
I am a social person and love to meet new people especially from different countries.
Right now I am interested in starting some cool projects especially entrepreneurial ones.

I am also the host of the 'Travel Wisdom ' podcast about how travel can be more than a vacation but a learning experience, give a listen! :)


you are never too young to do anything. let go of fear and do exactly what that little voice in your head says you should regrets!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i believe in Imanuel Kant's categorical imperative- also known as the golden rule. Host others and you know karma will make it so you are hosted as well :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
