About Me

I absolutely love this platform, also, a vegetarian, an adventurer and traveler , I like sports , soccer, biking, murals, street art / graffiti, and burning man festival . You think I'm a hippie? - well, not really 🤷‍♂️

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have travelled extensively and I'm always happy to share my apartment and meet people from different walks of life when I am available.

I can show you around if time allows. Washington DC is diverse, has a good transit system, lots of food options, entertainment and sports, a good sense of community, free things - museums are free to visit. Parks and trails all over, Increasing options for biking. Full of young people with lots of energy and drive.
DC is incredibly progressive- it's like the most liberal city/district/legal entity in the US
If you like politics, it is the world’s epicenter.
