Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm abroad to be exposed to different people, ideas, cultures, and FOOD. I am a firm believer that people are inherently good and want to be proven right by meeting as many people and learning their stories as possible.
I love: Food, games, theater going, publically humiliating myself, learning new things, cooking, Ultimate Frisbee, classical music, languages, making new friends, thrift shopping.

Friends have called me the most optimistic person they know, and I think live up to that.
