About Me




I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I went to Bethlehem, PA to attend university. Upon graduating, I moved back to New York to work several crappy jobs. I then did some research in the field of Microfluidics, while taking classes and working for the Japanese government. After finishing my research I moved to Arlington, VA, to work for the federal government, make music and be a yuppie. I got tired of that, though, so I stopped. I then moved to Göteborg, Sweden, where I studied toward a masters degree, did some consulting work and did other stuff that probably doesn't warrant mentioning. I now am back in Brooklyn, where I help run a civil engineering lab (big machines.) In my free time I make music, comics, guitar amps, software and try to find other creative outlets.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by telling everybody how great couchsurfing is. It really is great. I also host and surf.


I lived in Göteborg and went to school there. The way I found out about the school system in Sweden and even thought of applying was from CSers that I hosted.


Music, hockey, cooking, making things, breaking things, enthusiasm, sunshine and freedom, hospitality, the bar.
