About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Survive law school

ABOUT ME

I'm a bit of a chronic vagabond but I fell in love with Oman, so I've settled here for the time being. (This has been superseded since I started law school in NYC, but I'm not quite ready to admit it yet.)

I thrive on exploring new environments, learning new languages, and being outdoors, especially near mountains or water. I like hiking, climbing, scrambling, roaming, roadtripping, being in places where i can breathe and doing things that make my heart pound sincerely. I dislike frivolous small talk and have little talent for it. I'm an excellent navigator and a terrible storyteller. As a guest/traveler, I'm very independent and don't need to be "hosted" full-time, though I absolutely hope to get to know my hosts and guests on a level beyond superficial.

PHILOSOPHY

Be good.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been surfing couches since 2006 and am now trying to host as much as possible since I've settled down for a while. Please don't hesitate to ask if you're coming to Muscat.

Interests

Coffee, photography, linguistics, culture, chess, hiking, biking, exploring; I most enjoy setting off into the unknown with no plans or security blankets of any sort. I will try almost anything once.

Music, Movies & Books

Avid reader and viewer of anything not made in Hollywood.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The mountains and the sky

Teach, Learn, Share

I prefer learning to teaching - but if there's something I can teach you we'll probably find out what that is when we meet.
