About Me


World wandering, architecture student looking to cycle through and draw cities one at a time. I've lived and worked in Seattle, New York, Toronto, Paris in Rome in a whirlwind 5 year education program. Along the way I've met and enjoyed the company of some truly unique people.

I will be continuing this pattern in Brussels this time, where I'll be staying for 4 months gaining as much knowledge and experience in the realm of Urban Design. Meanwhile I'm looking forward to learn about Brussels from the seat of a bike or with sketchbook in hand.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to meet new people and turn foreign places into home, at least for a while.


I am obsessed with massive scale infrastructure, urban gardening, the wisdom of Jane Jacobs, and the energy of cities.

I enjoy cooking almost as much as I like eating. I'm pretty active and like bouldering, cycling and flipping upside down. I drink tea religiously and will never be found without a notebook of some kind. If I wasn't pursuing architecture, I think I would be in the circus.
