About Me

I love photography and visual art. I love to travel and enjoy bicycling and hiking. I was born in Philadelphia and now live in Washington, DC.

Traveling definitely heightens the senses, makes you feel more alive. Everything is that much more accentuated- sight, sound, smell, and other senses as well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted about 15-20 times so far.
I live in a small apartment and have a couch for you to crash on. Metric-wise it's about 8x5 meters or around 500 square feet. I've lived here for awhile and can give you lots of advice and maybe be a "tour guide for a day." I'm available to hang out for coffee or a drink.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Studied for a semester in the U.K. which opened up my mind to traveling, seeing other cultures, (in Europe) and becoming more independent and confident in myself. More amazing experiences to come.
