About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet awesome people, see pretty things, listen to great music. Wake up and repeat.

ABOUT ME

I'm a student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Studying abroad in Rio de Janeiro last semester was awesome! I met great CS'rs there; now I'm back and looking to get involved!

On the weekends I usually play ring of fire with drunken friends at parties. Going anywhere with a dance-floor is always a good thing. If a good band or DJ comes through town I usually go. I have come to love Orlando. There's good dance shows, good beer, and fun house parties.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to make meaningful connections with people. Passion is a beautiful thing to see someone express on their face. Mindless, goofy fun can be just as amazing too!"I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.""Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards."-Aldous Huxley"Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble.""It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain thought without accepting it" -Aristotle‘Our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness' - Vladimir Nabokov

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I met a TON of awesome CS'rs at the weekly copacabana meetings when I lived in Rio. So right now I'm really eager to host people from the US and abroad. Weekends are the best time to come, but if you come on a weekday that's fine too.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CS is some futuristic next-level shit! One of the few technologies that connects us to experiences and relationships. The CS'ers I've met are an evolved lot. Can't wait to meet more!
