About Me


Canning the 80 tomatoes in my kitchen.


An ex-camp counselor, valet, and barista, I now dedicate my time to an environmental development organization in Nicaragua. On the side, I am dedicated to cooking, reading, piano, soccer, and balcony time. Weather permitting.


Don't make any plans. The story never ends how you suspect.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and I am surfed. The CS events are great too.


On a bike trip from Montreal to Albany New York, I spent one evening in Albany New York with Meg. We ate delicious German food and drank beers on her porch.
