About Me


Live, grow, and build


I'm originally from New York City, and I live here again after spending two years in Bogotá, Colombia. I used CS a lot to host, travel, and meet people Colombia and elsewhere around South America. I should use it more in New York!


"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies: 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.' "

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had an amazing life in Colombia, and it was truly all thanks to CS: I found my first apartment, many friends, a lot of work, and my then-girlfriend through the site. CS made my life in Bogotá. I've also used it to travel elsewhere. (Charlotte in Pereira and Antonio in Buenos Aires are amazing!)


I've been a CS member since 2008 but I hadn't used the site until moving to Bogotá. CS was a godsend while I lived there, connecting me to my most wonderful new friends and experiences. On top of that, the two times I've stayed with CSers when traveling, they've been the most amazing people. CS is the best community in the world.
