About Me


Continue to grow up without it ever getting in my way.


I'm a 28 year old living in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. I live with my girlfriend (Laura) and our cat, Zimt. I like to ride or walk whenever possible, and want to hear why you like your favorite record.


Relax for your sake and everyone else's.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have used couch surfing while driving cross-country (USA) and while traveling down south and both were great experiences. Although I have mostly been the "surfer" in the past, I like to host people in Philadelphia


We arrived in Boone, NC to find out that our host was away. He was nice enough to let us stay in his house (without him) with a slew of other travelers. Hands down, one of the most memorable nights of my life.


Tube amplifiers, music making, records, bikes, vegetarian food, swing sets, and hanging on rooftops.
