About Me


Enjoy Philadelphia.


I will arm wrestle anyone who is willing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to host in my old house in Philly. Now I'm in tighter quarters so I can't host at the moment. I'll be traveling for a little while, but I hope to be able to host again upon my return.


I hosted quite a few lovely people in Philadelphia. I have surfed on occasion. Did a meet up with a local surfer in Durham, NC and went to a rock quarry to swim.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In my neighborhood I passed by a small girl wielding a large branch in an attempt to pry another small girl off of a high wall.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook. I also am handy around the house, so if you've got any little problems that need to be fixed, I'd be happy to help. I am learning Spanish, so if you need a good laugh...
