About Me

Traveling at the moment. Not able to host.

I have a deep connection to the Italian culture through my family roots and the time (~1 year) I have spent living there. I am also passionate about personal growth and self-exploration. I love to understand and overcome fears. Recently this resulted in me learning how to ride a motorcycle. I have a competitive and playful nature, especially with comedy improvisation. I enjoy playing tennis and Ultimate Frisbee the most. I also likes to perform in improv and sketch comedy from time to time. My deepest passion is for exploration of love ad relationships. I also enjoy SCUBA and sailing adventures.

I started a Couchsurfing spinoff community with my Couchsurfing and sailing friend, Marco, who, along with his awesome family, took me in, opened their hearts to me, and shared their lives with me. They became my adopted Italian family. Together Marco and I created Vagabond Sailing so that we could spread our mutual love for freedom and the sea and bringing people together.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing demonetizes hospitality. Demonetization will change the world, tilting the scale towards more love. The more we can take the money out of human interaction the better. For more information read the free book - Sacred Economics. Change your relationship to money, change your life.

I have met some amazingly kind people that generously opened up their homes and their hearts to me, and treated me like their own family. No words can ever begin to express how grateful I am to them for their love and kindness. Thanks to the love that was shown to me I have a deeper depth to love I give to the dear ones in my life.


Comedy. Love, relationships.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my favorite life experiences has been living on a sailboat for a month while touring the Mediterranean with my sailing club, Vagabond-Sailing. It's a club that I started in order to bring people together from all different cultures and walks of life, to learn how to live in a very confined and restricted space, learn sailing, and to explore amazing places that aren't even on maps and can't be accessed by roads (E.g. google "Girolata, Corsica" for an example of one cool place I've sailed to before).

Teach, Learn, Share

It's not what you say, it's how you say it. I know a thing or two about Nonverbal Communication (One Graduate Seminar's worth, plus many years experience) - would love to share what I know with you. It's quite fascinating stuff!
