About Me


To live my life and get my hustle on


I live for adventure. Other than that, I'm just chilling and taking life as it comes.


The golden rule :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


surfing for now, and going to meetings and events to meet other couch surfers!!


Going to various CS events! Also meeting up with other CSers who are in town. I am always down for meeting for coffee or a drink!


exploring new places, trying new things, meeting new people

Music, Movies, and Books

I like watching comedies, action, and some drama. No horror, it scares me!
I have a very eclectic taste in music...I'll listen to almost anything.
I loovvveee to read!! I like to read books on political thought and biographies...not really into fiction so much, but there are a few good fictions that I enjoy. The Looming Tower, Monsoon, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Bossypants, Lean In, and The Future of Power. My favourite author is David Sedaris, and everything he writes is brilliant!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Driving a tuk-tuk in Bangkok and a bajaj in Jakarta. Going on an 8 hour jungle hike with former GAM (Free Aceh Movement) rebels.
Also, Jerusalem is the most incredible city I've ever been to.
