About Me


Enjoy life while always learning


I'm a Statistics PhD student at the University of Washington. Even though money is a little tighter while I'm in school, I hope to still have some travel adventures!


The meaning of life comes through the summation of individual moments so life is all about great moments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope to meet some people through CouchSurfing possibly to stay with or just to meet when I travel.


I was introduced to CS when I met many great CouchSurfers who stayed with students in my study abroad program in Budapest, Hungary. I have stayed with CS hosts in Europe and Puerto Rico. Getting to know a city through the eyes of someone who lives there really enhances a travel experience, as I've found through CS.


My interests include great conversation, philosophy, math, traveling, and trying new food.
