About Me


To find (fill in the blank)


Even though I live here, I haven't come close to discovering 1/10 of New York City.

Making new friends on the spot in strange places, officiating weddings for a couple of love bird couch surfers, and using expiring frequent flyer miles to fly to Vegas by myself is a quick snapshot of who I am.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


When I have the time, I like to meet new people when I'm in a new city and show tourists the real New York.


I officiated the wedding of a couple on New Year's Day 2014 who met on CS in Israel. It was an "on the spot" wedding at Grand Central Terminal. One of the legal witnesses for the wedding was also from CS. 100 tourists surrounded us and thought the couple was famous and snapping photos of us. It was quite the experience.
