About Me


To have a blast with people all over the world!


Poppin and lockin for days. Expect to see my dance moves....haha just kidding....well maybe.

I am currently a freelance motion graphics designer/animator in New York City. I started working pretty much as soon as I graduated from college so I'm very eager to get out and see the world.

I love meeting new people and exploring what other cultures have to offer. I love laughing with strangers and getting to know others through fun and good conversation.


Friends and family are my life, including people that I meet anew. I love random nights out and spontaneously changing personal plans to have an awesome unexpected time at a place I've never been or with people I've never met. I never forget the people that have made an impression on me and I make it a point to keep in touch with them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am very keen on showing new people my surroundings and meeting people that do the same. I love showing people around New York City and possibly would love returning the favor to any person I stay with on my travels. Its fascinating to meet people and know you have friends everywhere and I'm really excited about it.


My experience started staying in Japan and just recently has extended to Paris, Barcelona, and Berlin. All of these places have been equally amazing in their own way and I hope to see even more places through the lives of other CS friends!


I love anything design and film related. Because of that I've been getting into photography. I'm really into live music, especially jazz and metal (a crazy combination I know). I'm a big bike enthusiast and love to exercise as well. I work hard but also love going out for drinks. I used to take martial arts for a while so lately I've been into MMA and K1. I love to make people laugh so I'm always creating with that in mind.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most recently, I visited Barcelona and broke into the olympic pool at 7 in the morning with a group of awesome people to go swimming....that and the view of that awesome city was amazing

Teach, Learn, Share

Being a guest in a foreign land I'm open to learn absolutely anything and teach anything. I am not that musically talented but could show you how to play the drums! haha.....Could even show you what I remember from taking karate for 8 years...I could share with you the beauty about the south and its scenery/people....I can share with you where I've been and where I want to go...learning never stops
