About Me


growth and exploration.


If you're considering hosting me & would like to have a video chat dinner date first, add me on Skype! Username: stendhalsyndr0me

I'm learning constantly.

I love intelligent and meaningful conversation. A good discussion is wonderful! I am open minded and like to share differing points of view in debate. Expanding my mind and opening my current beliefs up to change are important to me.

I love to make art and appreciate art. Painting, drawing, handmade garments... Crafts galore!

Don't mistake me for your stereotypical American.. I disagree with most of what my country does. I'm pro gay marriage, anti secular organized religion, and I don't eat junk food all the time! :P

As a surfer: I'm very respectful of your space & humbled by your willingness to welcome me into your home. I do not smoke, I only drink occasionally, but of course I don't mind if you do either of these things in my presence! I love all animals, am a vegetarian, and will happily have a cat or dog in my lap any time! (or snake, rabbit, lizard, ferret, etc...) I am very easy to please, relaxed & not at all demanding, and I will happily exchange work, chores, or skills for accommodation.


No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I don't have a couch but I can't wait until one day when I can host all kinds of surfers! I love meeting new people.


Reykjavik Iceland, Berlin and NYC. All were wonderful experiences and I'd love to continue the adventure.
