About Me


Travel as much as my limited budget allows


Just finished my degree in chemistry and now am working in Chicago and masquerading as a graduate business student and chilling.

've lived in Chicago four years now and think it is truly the most beautiful city I have ever seen. I enjoy biking, swimming, exploring the city etc. Even more so though, I enjoy traveling and take every chance to do so.


Don't be irritating and don't interrupt people. Listen first.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had my first couchsurfing experience about a year ago, and really enjoyed it. My host was able to break me free from the tourist path and show me the local culture. I was incredibly thankful for that and so am looking for similar experiences with other couchsurfers! Honestly, I just really like open minded well-informed foreigners. Always have. I've hosted a few people here one from Panama and the other from Germany, and Switzerland and it was pretty cool. I'm bummed to say that I honestly don't have tons of time to show CSs around, but I have plenty of suggestions.


Three times now. All were awesome. Hosted three now and have been equally enjoyable.


foreign politics, economics, international affairs, painting, art in general, music, clubbing

Music, Movies, and Books

Classical and anything you can dance to!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Singing with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra probably takes the cake. Also studying at an incredible university is pretty life changing too. As for traveling? Not much beats natural scenery--Switzerland was incredibly beautiful.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm really not sure about this blurb. Hm I know how to make mediocre lentil soup.
