About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To furnish travelers with comfort.

ABOUT ME

I M easy-going, yet energetic. I get along with everyone: priests, rabbis, wanderers, musicians, explorers, party animals, quiet types, French, Poles, Texans, Chicagoans, parokeets, gays, asexuals, beetles, or trapeze artists--we have seen them all! :) I am from a small town in the Midwest, but have lived in NYC (off and on) for 14 years.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm a nihilist. Just kidding.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Please inquire whether we are able to host you for a weekend or a night. We live together in a cozy one bedroom in Washington Heights, which is in Uptown Manhattan. We have pictures of our spacious apartment.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great experiences so far, raging from a French couple to a Chicago vegabond to a Polish English teacher, to two fun-loving Canadians. This is a supreme way of meeting people.

Interests

Rraveling, hiking, reading, tourism, nature, and many more. We also have individual interests that we can share with anyone interested.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

After graduating college, I hopped a 2am train and moved to NYC with $900 to my name and a bag of clothes. I moved to Berlin on a whim in 2005--just quit my job and moved there. I lasted 6 months. I lived in a Zen Buddhist temple in Brooklyn, NY for a year. I hiked for 4 days in Utah canyons. Breathtaking! I moved to Seattle three years ago to study environmental issues.

Teach, Learn, Share

Respect your guest. Respect your hosts. You'll get along just fine.
