Find the perfect city
I'm working part time until medical school in the fall. I really like people and IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢m very interested in what they have to say. IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢ve been told I have a strong personality. Of course I like to travel and IÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢m always in search of new experiences.
I'd say trying to be happy and to make those around you (especially those you care about) happy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far I’ve mostly surfed. And I hope to do a lot of it because I love to travel and my experience so far is that it makes a great thing even more enjoyable. I recently hosted a few people while staying in Medellin Columbia and my experiences ranged from Good to Super Outstanding. I hope to host again soon, I currently don’t have a couch. I’ll see if it is a possibility when I go back to school in the fall. If not it will definitely be in my future.
In May ’09, I rode my Kawasaki Kz550 GPz from Boston to Los Angeles to get to an internship and couchsurfed most of the nights that I spent on the way in a bunch of cool cities, Flagstaff, Amarillo, State College, and Oklahoma City. That was a great experience, but in case you aren’t familiar, the GPz is a street bike, not made for cross-country travel and my ass suffered for it. And I want to say thank you again to all of my hosters on that trip who took me in on such short notice. You guys made the trip a whole lot more enjoyable. I have now also surfed in Ensenada Mexico, Barranquilla Colombia, Panama City Panama, and Chapel Hill US. Thank you to everyone of you guys who offered a couch as well.
My favorite things are pretty simple, talking to people, reading, listening to music, cooking. That said, I like a lot of things that are a little more fast paced. Riding motorcycles, boxing, wrestling, snowboarding, longboarding, gymnastics. I also want to try windsurfing and surf some more. I also like regular sports, soccer, basketball, volleyball, anything you can pick and play.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Worked in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Sarajevo, Bosnia. This was definitely an awesome experience and I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity. Somehow I leaped right into that and it all worked out like clockwork.
Teach, Learn, Share
I would say I am a very curious and opinionated person, I'll talk about and learn about anything from anyone. I also specifically want to learn how to play the trumpet. I know a lot about biology (people rarely take me up on that), nutrition and healthy living, a little bit of Spanish and French.
