About Me

JUST A HEADS UP: I get a lot of requests to host so I try my best to respond to everyone, but I'm sorry if I don't respond to you, it's not on purpose! :D

I'm the outgoing adventurous type (as are most people on this site). I work in Boston as a videographer and photographer. I have been playing in bands and touring since I was 16, so I am no stranger to crashing on strangers' couches and floors. I love to travel and meet people from different parts of the world. I'm extremely easy to get a long with, and I'm a clean, polite guest. I've Spent time living and traveling all over the States, Costa Rica, Western Europe, Fiji, Ecuador, and Australia.


I have three roommates and a cat in my apartment. They're all pretty cool and relaxed. Since we have shared common spaces, I host people in my room (chaise lounge, futon, air mattress).

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 last year.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach many instruments. I'm always happy to share my knowledge of music with people!
