About Me


To live life to the fullest everyday.



Recently I have graduated from Architecture school and am looking to concentrate my time on learning new skills, sketching and observing, building my portfolio, traveling and thinking about design.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted many interesting, multi-cultural, brilliant and friendly people during my time on couch surfing. In the past I have made great friends that I communicate with much later after meeting. I'm looking forward to hosting you in New York and traveling to your cities around the world.


I have hosted dozens of friendly and respectful couch surfers in my home. Frequently I've had the time to show surfers around my city.


I am passionate about design, & making of all types.

Drawing & sketching especially interest me. I draw all the time and sketch everywhere.

Reading is especially important to me and I like reading about all sorts of topics from history to architectural theory to philosophy and how-to.

I have a thing for early to mid-20th century film.

I am obsessed with the 19th Century.

I ride bikes.

I have begun learning how to sew and recently acquired a 1940s singer to practice on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2013 I saw the Hagia Sophia. It was incredible and the experience inside other Turkish mosques blew me away.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to appreciate all that space is in our lives. Everything we do, we do in some relationship with architecture, whether natural or human-created. It is profound and interferes with our everyday in all sorts of ways. Through thoughtful design strategies, we can begin to create better spaces.
