About Me


To do the things that scare me most and take plenty of pictures


I'm modest, I'm humble, and I'm fucking awesome.


I want to get the most out of every possible experience. I want to laugh at awkward situations. I want to meet someone goofier than me. I want to dance with life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've met tons of amazing people through hosting couchsurfers and traveling. Now I plan on continuing the couchsurfing karma chain.


Last February my roommate from San Francisco and I couchsurfed in Puerto Rico and fell in love.... so obviously we flew back home, packed up our stuff, and moved here 2 months later.


attempting spanish, philosophical conversations, photography, exploring, meeting interesting people, picnics in the park.

Music, Movies, and Books

My personal favorites: modest mouse, radiohead, pinback, sunset rubdown, stars, mgmt, crystal castles, oxford collapse, phoenix, okkervil river, the shins, sufjan stevens, the decemberists, hot chip, anything that makes me groove.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spontaneously moving to Puerto Rico with nothing but a couple bags of clothes would be pretty high up on my list.

Teach, Learn, Share

The only way to grow in life is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations. You aren't always going to be happy with where you are in the moment but if you remember to appreciate those moments as learning opportunities, then none of them will be wasted.
