About Me


Enjoy life


The best plan is no plan. I like deciding to go on a trip, and being on the road an hour or two later.


Don't worry--everything will work out OK.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a vagabond at heart, so I'm often on the road. I haven't gotten a chance to use CS much, but I'm surfing on friends couches constantly.

I've hosted loads of friends, but only a few that I've met through CS. Hopefully I'll get to host more soon!


I've used the website to surf in Penang and Montreal and Colombia. I am constantly hosting and crashing with friends or friends of friends. Looking to host more.

Teach, Learn, Share

Math and chess two of my biggest passions, and I love to share them!
