About Me


Enjoy life and stuff, y'know?


sup? I'm back in my hometown after half a year of traveling, trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. In the mean time, I'm just taking life as it comes, as seems to be the thing to do when you're in that awkward phase post-graduation and pre-real life. Right now, I'm working with Multnomah County to provide respite care for autistic children, while I save up for grad school and to travel more! In my free time, I like hanging out with my buds, and going out downtown to party it up!


Chill out, man.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed for the first time during my trip through Europe, specifically in Berlin and Paris. I met some really awesome people who helped enhance my trip a lot, and I can't wait to do it again next time I travel!


-Astronomy (space is fucking awesome)
-Traveling (duh)
-Urban exploration
-Mindlessly browsing Wikipedia
-Video games
-Autism and similar mental disabilities

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Crater Lake in Oregon. If you ever get the chance to go here, do it! Words can't describe how mindblowing the sight is when you first see it.

-First time walking into Times Square in New York. Gotta love that sudden barrage of commercialism.

-The entirety of my trip through Europe! It was my first time being outside of the country (well, besides Canada), and it was amazing getting to see so many new places and meet tons of awesome people.
