About Me

I'm a mechanical engineer who loves to read, write, and hike. I want to explore as much as I can, while still taking my time to soak everything in. My favorite thing to do is bike!

I am an optimist!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The world is filled with amazing people, and I love meeting as many of them as I can.


Running, Ultimate frisbee, hiking, biking, swimming, reading, poetry and engineering.

Anything outdoors!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: anything and everything (some highlights- Phoenix, Kendrick Lamar, Neil Young)

Movies: Amelie, The Gods Must Be Crazy, Coming to America

Books: Lolita, Ender's Game, Dune, Gone With The Wind, Golden Compass series...anything really!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've biked across the USA! It took 10 weeks of biking ~80 miles a day--one of the best summers of my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could share my poetry! I also play the violin, and frisbee. We could go biking together!

I'd like to learn other instruments, as well as outdoors skills!
