About Me


To never be bored


I just finished college at Rochester Institute of Technology. After spending four years exploring the city I am ready adventure somewhere else. I am taking some time after school to travel and spend time climbing mtns and seeing new cities. Right now Im getting ready to spend a month in Europe and the winter in Jackson Hole Wyoming to ski.

I am always down to explore an old building, ski down a mountain, or walk round a city at night.


Im still working on defining my philosophy, until I do I try to make sure Im never too tied down with work to limit experiencing as much of life as I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The trip I am planning right now is my first experience using CS to find places to stay. Over the past few months my house has hosted surfers from both America and Europe.


So far my experience. I have hosted a few interesting groups ranging from bluegrass musicians from Georgia to jugglers from Germany. I surfed on couch in Prague and had an amazing time. All the people Ive met through couchsurfing, whether they be hosts, surfers, or just other members have been great people to share travel experiences with.


Being outside. Hiking, climbing, skiing, bicycling, longboarding, reading, photography, surfing, listening to (wishing I could play) music, writing, drinking beer, and just plain old good times with friends.
