About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn as much as I can from as many people as I can!

ABOUT ME

I'm a 22 year old student, currently living in Boston, MA. I'm studying political science at UMass Boston and I spend most of my free time trying to become a photojournalist.

PHILOSOPHY

Never miss an opportunity! Always use spell check! Always have a suitcase packed and ready to go anywhere! "Practice Charity without holding in mind any conceptions about charity, charity after all is just a word"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would love to do some surfing this summer, and not stayed tied down in one place. Otherwise, I'm just kinda seeing what it is all about right now, when I do get to settle down I'd love to host all sorts of people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet, hope to have some great stories soon!

Interests

Traveling, reading, politics, progressive youth movements, photography, photojournalism, history, learn about all cultures, religions, and anything else. Hiking, biking, fishing, camping, cooking, biking, being outside.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'm becoming an emerging photojournalist covering social justice movements in the US and other protest/activism type stuff. I've recently been published in some medium/large magazines and have had 3 photos that have "gone viral".

I've camped out on a vacant lot in Detroit with 300 other young people at the US Social Forum, I've spoken at conferences on youth in politics.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm an excellent dish washer and any general labor, I love talking/teaching history and politics, and what's mine is yours.
