About Me


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.

I work from 9am - 5:30pm during the week. Generally we try not to have surfers in the house while we're at work. I know you're all great people, but we have some expensive music and video equipment that would be extremely inconvenient if some of it disappeared. I'm sure you understand :)

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.
