About Me


Soul Shakedown Party Tonight!


I love to socialize and meeting new and interesting people is probably my favorite thing to do in life along with traveling, which is pretty much the whole point of joining CS. Currently I live in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago and I graduated from Columbia College Chicago in the spring of '09. I currently work in marketing and sales for my family's restaurants.


Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts beneath your feet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love hosting Couch Surfers because it gives me the opportunity to meet new friends from all over, and show them around. I am a very social person so even if you live in Chicago and are looking to meet someone new for coffee or a drink, I am totally open to that. Feel free to shoot me a message!


I've hosted a few Surfers, but I am yet to couchsurf myself. All experiences have been great thus far.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent 10 days traveling throughout Israel and made friends with Israeli soldiers. It was a life changing experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to share my beautiful city of Chicago with anyone who would like to visit. I have lived here my entire life and never once have I taken it for granted. Especially in the summer.
