About Me



To travel and to learn


I am a pretty laid back guy who enjoys the finer things in life. I can be quite quiet and shy but if you get to know me more I can open up so to speak. I have been living in NYC for a few years. If you want to know more about me then just ask because I'm not sure this amount of space could describe everything about me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am currently going to school and I can host people as well. Weekends are usually the best times.


I can not begin to explain the great experience that I have had with CS. Even though I have only surfed three times those three times have been way more than I could ever have expected or hoped for. I have been so lucky to have the greatest host in all the places I have visited, including Lyon, Nice, and Padova.


I am very interested in learning as much as I can while I'm on this Earth! I have been recently interested in learning about other cultures and in specific languages. I have studied French, Italian, and Dutch and hope to learn more in the future. It may not appear but I enjoy exercising and running. I have gone into a slump recently but I hope this summer to do a lot of hiking and swimming and basking in the summer sun. I also love music as I'm sure most human beings do. I basically love to enjoy the moment at hand, including right now ;)
