About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a job in Seattle =]

ABOUT ME

Update (1/15/2015): I've moved to Seattle!

Update (4/25/2014): I'm living in Midtown again, right next to Georgia Tech. I have a comfy spare room and would love to host surfers =]

Update (2/2013): I live/work in Sandy Springs (a suburb of Atlanta.) I have a nice big house with another CSer with lots of spare rooms. I can totally start hosting people again!

Update (7/2012): I am moving to Bolzano, Italy to do an exchange year at the Free University of Bolzano. Hopefully I will be able to find a flat where I can host (haven't had one of those for a while)! Anyway, I'd love to meet up with other South Tyrolean CSers and practice languages or explore the area.

PHILOSOPHY

Have cardboard and Sharpie will travel!

"Don't pay it back, instead, pay it forward to someone else who needs it."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a lot in San Francisco and surfed in Mexico and Canada. I'm also pretty active in the Atlanta CS community.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met most ridiculous cool people here and am loving every minute. Also, I spent my spring break couch surfing in Baja Sur and met some amazing folks ;)

Update: Couchsurfed in Canada Summer 2011--thank you everyone!

Music, Movies & Books

On a bit of a kick right now with mid-20th century dystopian novels, 'We' by Yevgeny Zamyatin, '1984', 'Brave New Word', 'The Dispossessed', etc.

I like sci-fi in general, 'Dune' and 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' are some of my favorites.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitchhiking in Baja Sur! I cannot believe that such nice people exist as the ones that picked me up =)

Crossed Canada by hitchhiking! (almost never got out of "Longtario" though)
