About Me


Trying not to get rained on in the UK


So, I'm an American Law student currently working on human rights law in the UK. It's a really great gig and I'm doing what I love, which is more than can be said for other law students. I'm trying to take in as much British culture as I can while I'm here, and so far it's been great!


Even the worst parts of life serve a good purpose. You've got to push through the bad because you'll just enjoy the good that much more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm an creative person who really likes meeting new people. I'm relaxed and open, and I don't get offended easily. I'm also respectful and clean, so definitely a minimal presence in any flat. If I could only bring one piece of Britannica back to the US with me, it would be the beer.


I have never couch surfed before, so I'm looking to make it a good experience.


Music (hip hop, jazz, funk, electro), politics, law, international affairs, documentaries, public radio, the internet, football, and walking.
