About Me




I'm originally from California, lived on the East coast of America for about 8 years, and have been living in Europe for more than a decade.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed, participated in meetings, hosted meetings, etc. My activity has dropped off a bit the last few years, but I am looking to find ways to participate within my busy schedule.


I have done a bit of couch surfing. The people I've met through this site have been invariably nice and cool to hang out with.


I want to see the world... all of it. This will take some time. I am currently working on a systematic coverage of Europe since I'm living here.

To give an impression of myself, here is a sample of interests in alphabetical order:
alcohol, architecture, art, avocados, garbanzo beans, German beer, hiking, lentils, machine learning, minimalist music, packing light, scuba diving, skiing, spinach, sushi
