About Me

Hey there! I'm currently an Emergency Room doctor in NYC. I’ve lived here about 3 years now, after spending the last eight in Chicago. New York is one of my absolute favorite places - a crazy diverse international metropolis and of course the city that never sleeps. On the weekends I’m not working, you’ll usually find me checking out the food scene, chilling at a rooftop or speakeasy, or planning my next trip abroad

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Some of my favorite moments have been true, authentic experiences of daily life. Roaming around the Soviet classrooms at a university in Ukraine; sitting in on a German class in Turkey and somehow learning Turkish; visiting a high school in Poland; meeting traditionally dressed people from the closed off country of Turkmenistan. These experiences meant more to me than going around to all the touristy sites in a city

Teach, Learn, Share

I love traveling and learning about different ways of living, and I’m always up for a new experience. I like understanding the perspective of locals, so always happy to meet up! We can go for a walk, grab food, share a beer, or even discover parts of a city that not many people know about
