About Me


to make new friends, go adventuring, and generally enjoy life


I'm spending a year teaching English to kids in Israel. I will also be doing additional volunteer work soon.


If it's meant to be, you'll make it happen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to CS in the near future!


I'm not sure if sleeping on a few couches after a storm evacuation counts. But if it does, it surely was an experience!


I like doing anything adventurous or spontaneous!

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Ender's Game, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Separate Peace, books I read back in school that will probably make me sound like a nerd if listed here :) Wait, who am I kidding... I'm a nerd. I really enjoyed a book called The Globalizers: The IMF, the World Bank, and Their Borrowers.
Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, American Beauty, Back to the Future, The Matrix, Into the Wild, Office Space, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Princess Bride, Donnie Darko (and basically anything with Jake Gyllenhaal)
Shows: HIMYM, Whitney, Law and Order SVU, Big Bang Theory, NCIS
Music: alternative rock, indie rock/pop, some electronica, music in languages I can't understand

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Went skydiving
-Spent an incredible 24 hours in Madrid during the 2010 World Cup Final
-Slept under the stars at the Dead Sea
-Completed a Tough Mudder (It's this crazy obstacle course mud run. 12.5 miles. 23 obstacles. What sane person willingly signs up to army crawl through water and electrical wires? Uh, me and 10 of my friends apparently. So much adrenaline, so much teamwork. Great memories!)
-Seeing NASA's Space Shuttle launch from the closest possible VIP section :)

Sorry I couldn't just pick two or three moments!
