About Me

Musician | Filmmaker | Photographer

I like to travel the world, eat food, and make friends. Simple as that!
I'm from Boston but live in New York City and like to spend my time traveling either with my band, or for work (shooting commercials or documentaries).
My favorite thing about travel is landing in a city knowing nobody, and leaving feeling like you have a second home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on CS because the world is a better place when you have more friends in it!


My band takes up a good amount of my time, but I'm always writing and recording music on the side. I'm the type of person who has a new hobby almost every other week.

  • cooking
  • filmmaking
  • playing music
  • bike touring
  • pasta
  • photography.

Music, Movies, and Books

The Pogues and Bouncing Souls are my two favorite bands that have influenced me in many ways.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 20, I flew out to California with no knowledge of bikes and rode a bicycle from San Francisco to San Diego with my best friend. We camped out every night and met amazing people along the way.

Loved it so much that I did the same thing in Portugal.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach many instruments and handmade pasta making!
