About Me


Building up and branching out.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds, especially people who live with passion. So far, Couchsurfing has really been an incredible platform for doing this.


Music, art, architecture, reading, writing, cooking, philosophy, biking, hiking, kayaking, camping, and other things of similar and completely unrelated natures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: I love zombie movies. I mean, I like other movies too, but I really love zombie movies. I also really enjoy a good space movie, though they seem to be few and far between.

Music: My music interests are pretty varied. I really enjoy the blues and its variants.

Books: Currently reading "The Voyage of the Beagle" and "The Settlement of Illinois, 1778-1830". I tend to like philosophy-based literature, science and natural history, urban planning books, and dystopian novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been on top of a mountain overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, ran around the Champs-Elysees in Paris, and rafted through the Grand Canyon. I would say I've been pretty lucky so far!

I'm really glad to be able to explore my home country more in the last couple of years. I've been travelling fairly extensively in the Great Lakes Region, and plan to continue to do so.
