About Me


Find some friends in Goa...this will be my first experience with couch surfing...wish me luck!


Born in Canada, grew up in North Carolina (USA)...I have been in the northeast for almost 10 years now! I like to meet new people and laugh about the taboos we all make...Somewhere out there, in some parallel universe, I am running an inner city school and teaching 9th grade biology while simultaneously playing clarinet for the Philadelphia Orchestra. But in this life, I'm a little less exciting. Don't let that stop you from reading on.


Always write your name, date, and class period at the top of your paper FIRST.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm just looking for people to hang out with while I'm in Goa, but I'll be couch surfing a lot in the future.


So far, I've had none. This might change this evening when I go to the last night of the Sunburn festival in Goa!


Triathlons, marathons, classical music, hiking/backcountry, my college roommate and lover (again, only in a parallel universe, not in the real this world, I am going to be his best man and no more)

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything but country music. I never get time to read for pleasure, but I think Atul Gawande counts. What a cool guy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed my first 14er out in Colorado with my college roommate last summer. AMAZING! I almost died though.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love cooking traditional Bengali cuisine (with some Western influence in some dishes). I love having friends over and teaching, eating, and eating some more.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, France, India, Portugal, Singapore, United Kingdom
