About Me


living and working my way through Europe from winter to early summer


I'm a recent college graduate, 24 years old. I am passionate about traveling, seeing absolutely everything that I can, and meeting local people from the places that I go. I am passionate about history, especially European and American. Geopolitics is my current obsession. I hope one day to become a writer, and to live as active and meaningfully as possible.


Hmmm...don't know if I could boil it down to a few sentences. Meet me and find out!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


surfing, hosting, meeting other members and such. For the time being, I am unable to host anybody, as I am traveling for the next few months.


I have used couchsurfer with my girlfriend a few times, all good experiences. The prospect of meeting so many new people was incredibly exciting, so I've created my own profile.


Reading, writing, paintball, history, wandering, basketball, politics, geopolitics, travel, long conversations about life, cities, trying to learn foreign languages, improv
