About Me


To explore the world, one pouffy couch at a time. (and find a place to live in Boston for now)


Lookin' around for a place to live before starting the job.


If the group can benefit from one's sacrifice to a degree more than what that individual gave up, it's worth it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just look for couches at the moment. Once I get my own place I'll probably host my own couch.


Surfed with Eli and Mike Atlas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed up a mountain near Mount Everest and nearly suffocated. It's surprising how you actually start to lose your mind at those altitudes!

I can tell you all about Asia, Kung Fu and computers. I'd like to learn about Boston and what to do.
