About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Still figuring it out

ABOUT ME

I'm 26 years old and am finishing up medical school in Philadelphia (just got back from Lima, Peru where I was doing public health/ neurology research. I always have trouble writing these little blurbs because I feel like any person is so difficult to really "understand" - there are a ton of different sides to me, but with conviction i can say: i'm friendly and open-minded, and I try to love everyday and love the people that i'm with!
I love learning and having long conversations -it's hard to find a topic that doesn't interest me.

PHILOSOPHY

Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

stayed in Zurich for a weekend, stayed for two days in Toulouse and two days in Rochefort du Gard outside of Avignon, stayed in Hanover, New Hampshire, part of the Philadelphia couch surfing community. stayed in Milan, Turin, and Dublin. Hosted many people in my house in Philadelphia. Stayed in Lima with some couchsurfers and met many others who became close friends. They were all great experiences!
