About Me


Back in NYC after living in Tokyo for a few years.


I graduated from Boston University back in 2008, studied in graduate school in Tokyo for awhile, and finished law school at Harvard a few years back. I'm trying to take as much time as I can to travel and meet new people in between working excessive hours as a lawyer.


Just trying to make the most of things and experience life as it comes while treating others as well as I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have surfed and hosted some amazing people, and looking forward to getting back on the road!


I've had some wonderful experiences so far; CS has let me meet some fantastic people and have just had great experiences both surfing and hosting.


In general, I go out with friends to cafes, great restaurants, bars, and museums. Good company and good food are just two of the things that make me happy.

Always up for exploring and traveling either a new location or wherever I am at the time. When I'm by myself, I'm more of a reading and watching movies kind of guy, with a healthy dose of sports and gym time thrown in as well.
