About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"To make my time and life on earth fun, efficient, exciting, beneficial, unique, and beautiful"

ABOUT ME

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

Making a new friend on the spot in a strange place, officiating a wedding for a lovely pair of couch surfers, and using expiring frequent flyer miles to fly to Vegas by myself is a quick snapshot of who I am.

PHILOSOPHY

"As I see it, there are two kinds of people in this world; people who love delis and people you shouldn't associate with." ~ Damon Runyan

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to meet new people when I'm in a new city.

When I have the time, I like to show tourists the "not Times Square" real New York City and also host when I can. I go to private parties with my friends that cost $0 (art, fashion, music) and like to invite people as I usually get an extra ticket.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I officiated the wedding of a couple on New Year's Day 2014 who met on this website in Israel. The wedding was at Grand Central Terminal. 100 tourists surrounded us and thought the couple was famous and snapping photos of all of us.
