About Me


to discover the earth and meet new people along the way.


i like good people.

i work as a photographer/photo editor for a couple magazines. i absolutely love being a part of brooklyn. i will never say no to a good meal with friends. i appreciate thoughtful conversation and i like the quiet. i prefer to be happy. i don't get to travel as much as i used to now that i've somewhat settled down, but hoping to get out and discover the states a bit more. i live for art in all its forms.


be better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i've surfed quite a bit over the years and have really enjoyed nearly all of my experiences.


So far, it's been absolutely wonderful. I've had amazing hosts and met new people who I otherwise wouldn't have had the chance of meeting.


I absolutely love going to concerts and making films and video blogs. I'm also a big fan of books. I'm really working on strengthening my relationship with Christ.
