About Me


mind expansion


I'm a resident of Brooklyn, NY, a recent NYU graduate. I first travelled at age 16 when my parents spoiled me by taking me to London and Paris. I later lived in London for six weeks and traveled to Amsterdam. After that I lived in Florence for three months and visited: Rome, Bologna, Milan, Venice, Cinque-Terre, Lake Como, Pisa, Lugano, Barcelona, Seville, Madrid, Prague, Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, and Morocco (so, a lot of places!) In 2009 I visited my sister in her new home in Berlin and traveled for six weeks to Madrid, Valencia, Granada, Salobrena, Lisbon, Porto, Istanbul, and Copenhagen. I went to Mexico for the first time in 2011 and back to Spain to visit a friend. I just got back from my first trip to Japan, where I travelled for two weeks, and am on my way to Beijing and Hong Kong for the first time!


I associate loosely with secular humanism. I believe in making the most out of life. It's a waste if you're not passionate. I try to never miss the opportunity to do something new.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm looking for places to stay and have a couch in Brooklyn, but also have lots of roommates. I'm always happy to share a coffee or a meal though!


I have met up with couchsurfers/been hosted in Granada, Valencia, Lisbon, Porto, and Copenhagen, and they were all positive experiences


music, film, literature, philosophy, happiness

Music, Movies, and Books

too much, but I identify with the nebbish brilliance of Woody Allen and Kurt Vonnegut

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Celebrating the new year in Barcelona, seeing my sister get married on a mountaintop in Zermatt, Switzerland, participating in Temazcal in Mexico, eating raw horse meat in Tokyo
