Join Couchsurfing to see Andrew’s full profile. It’s free!
I grew up in a small town in Virginia, and did not board my first passenger jet until my senior year of university. Once I finally did, the travel bug bit me, and I was off. I lived and worked in Chicago for 2 years, and now I'm traveling a bit and doing tech for CouchSurfing.
I enjoy making things.
- Silliness is important!
- Never cease to learn.
- Do it yourself, if you can (why not!?).
- No expectations.
- Do over not do.
- Boggle your mind, all the time.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm was once a member of the CouchSurfing tech team. I did a small bit of web development, but mostly focused on keeping the servers alive and healthy.
I hosted in Chicago for the couple of years that I lived there. I've surfed a bit in the US, but mostly while traveling around South East Asia.
Classical guitar, contra dancing, potlucks, asparagus, David Attenborough, chess, bike polo, geek outs, making functional things and cardamom. These are definitely all of my interests.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Alaska is ridiculous:
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to teach. I can teach a bit of guitar, I love to rant about the mind boggling weirdness of modern physics, and I enjoy explaining computers in non-computer jargon.
I have a secret fancy coffee recipe. I will tell you the secret.
