Join Couchsurfing to see Matt’s full profile.
I studied Psychology and Spanish at James Madison University in the US and graduated in December of 2018. I’m currently working as an operations and research consultant with a couple of companies in educational and sport psychology. I just got married in 2023 to my wife who is from Rio de Janeiro. We have quite the story! I’d love to share more about it with you. I hope to either move to Europe or a different part of the US to continue my studies in a PhD Program in the coming years, or to just keep doing the work that I do. I love to do research, I love high performance, I love traveling, I love learning languages, I love deep conversations, and I love building meaningful relationships! I also enjoy cooking, exercising, and reading (a lot!).
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I want to travel more and meet people who live where I go, while also hosting people from places all over the world. I want to learn more about their personal experiences, perspectives, and how those experiences have formed their perspectives. I want to build more connections around the world as well and to learn as much as I can from those connections that I build.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When white water rafting in Costa Rica in 2014, my raft capsized and I was stuck underneath for two minutes. Fortunately, I survived and can now travel some more and meet more people around the world!
Teach, Learn, Share
I am always willing to learn about anything from others and to share my perspective in a discussion. I am an open book and I am very open-minded. I am a deep, critical thinker who loves to use logic, reasoning, and science to seek the truth.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I will do everything I can to make your life easier and to make things flow smoothly when I stay with you. I don’t need much and I pack very light, so I am easy to attend to.
