About Me

I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan as an Editor for Documentaries.

I spend my free time making crafts, painting, and listening to storytelling podcasts. I believe that you cannot hate someone whose story you know.

Half the time I don't even sleep in my own bed because I love my couches! We have four and they each have individual purposes. I think you'll love them too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

If I can't travel I may as well let the travelers come to me! I want to hear your story.

When I do have the opportunity to travel, one of the most important parts for me is not just seeing the sights but meeting the people of that world. Staying with a local is the best opportunity to make that happen.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Historical and Cultural aspects of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Over the past few years, my neighborhood of Bushwick has become a flourishing artist community and one of the most notable in the world. There are dozens of murals, galleries, and studios to visit. I can show you around!

When I'm surfing on your couch I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about life in New York. I can also offer any fellow LGBTQ couchsurfers guidance on nightlife and events we have here in the city.
