Join Couchsurfing to see Patrick’s full profile. It’s free!
I served with the Peace Corps in Senegal from 2012-2014 and am currently a graduate student studying international public affairs with an emphasis in global health and global environmental health policy. Skiing, frisbee, hiking and mountain and road biking are my primary athletic interests but I'm excited to start scuba diving.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
So that I can give fellow travelers a nice place to sleep and advice about the area and so that I can enjoy the same during my own travels.
Reading within the following genres: current affairs, environmental studies, literary fiction, sci-fi, espionage.
Also, as I noted above, I'm an avid cyclist and hiker, and I fly fish.
