About Me

I'm out here trying to enjoy life and make a real contribution!

Eventually, I'd like to see the whole world! But, since I can't be everywhere at once, I'll have to settle for one country at a time. My focus of study was international relations, especially transatlantic relations and European Integration. I've done tons of development work in Eastern Europe, but now I'm in Tech in Philadelphia, working hard and hosting travelers!

If I can make other people happy, they'll do the same for people they meet in the future. That's gratifying for me.

Looking for the best things to do in Philly?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I Surfed all around over Europe, and have hosted over 200 people since coming back

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Scuba Diving once we saw a humpback whale. It was the scariest and most incredible things I've ever seen. If you think a 30ft creature looks big on TV, wait until you see the silhouette coming at you through the dark ocean while you're suspended helpless in the middle of the water.

Also, one winter in DC the whole city was covered in 5 ft of snow, and almost 500 people gathered in the middle of the day for one of the biggest city-wide snowball fights there ever was. Came out of it with a black eye and a sore jaw, but it was by far the most fun I've had there!
