Hey chicos y chicas of the world!
PLEASE READ ABOUT THE HOUSING SITUATION BEFORE REQUESTING TO SURF AT MY PLACE! thanks!
I am a musician, traveler, hitchhiker and student from the USA.
I've grown tired of hostels and buses so my new and improved traveling philosophy is to go as far off the beaten track as possible while exploring new ways of getting around. I just returned home from a long one-year journey and am now back in Boston. Time to return the favor!
I am studying English and journalism but I consider myself a traveler and musician above all things. In my free time I can be found working at a local art gallery/cultural center or street performing in the city.
I am currently living in an on-campus cooperative (see housing)

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I bring my own beer.
Communal stir fry cooking in Cuenca, hard cider on the New Orleans trolley, dragging someone to their first American college party, road trips in the Deep South.
Playing my geetar, reading new books, meeting, conversing, parting, laughing, crying, hitchhiking, kicking back on a hammock, listening to new ideas.
