About Me


“rediscover and celebrate the enchantment of being human.”


Ape in captivity trying to figure out how to beat humans at their own game.


Your guess is as good as mine:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted and surfed a lot in college. I haven't been as active lately, but the spirit lives on!


I stayed at the kookiest MIT frat house/mansion made of and fused with inventions by genius student designers.

I rode my bicycle over 1000 miles with my best friend. We headed south from Philadelphia to Atlanta and with the help of couchsurfing learned the true definition of Southern hospitality.

I hosted for the better half of college life with the assistance of fellow surfers and/or housemates Joles , Jefe , Pablito and Greggers .

Check them out, they are good people.


Becoming ever wiser.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode bicycles south for 3 weeks with my best friend when I was 20. We stayed with CouchSurfers, camped on the side of the highway and met random people who offered us shelter and food in exchange for stories and appreciation. Amazing.
