About Me


Was there only one world after all, which spent its time dreaming of others?


I have two great passions, reading and travel. Reading is really just travelling with your mind, so I suppose that it's really one interest. As a current uni student, I'm trying to maximize my life experiences on a bit of a budget, but I'm always down for an adventure. I love discovering new cultures, food, and music. I'm extremely close to my family, and love the rest of the people in my life just as dearly.


You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too, so while you point your fingers someone else is judging you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I get back from travelling, I hope to show anyone who wants to see beautiful Boston, MA.


I met girls tramping (hiking) in New Zealand's South Island and they invited me back to their home in Dunedin for five days. The time they took to show me around the city, introduce me to their friends and other local Kiwis made Dunedin the best experience I've had in New Zealand. The kindness of previously-strangers, now-friends made my trip a positive experience, and I can only hope it happens frequently for the rest of my life.


I'm interested in science and technology, most music, cultures, travel, history and politics. If you tell a good story or are passionate about something, I'll probably be interested!
