Join Couchsurfing to see Zack’s full profile. It’s free!
I just finished my studies at University of Delaware-with degrees in Civil Engineering and Russian Language Studies. Looking to do Developmental Engineering (whatever that means) - but right now I am trying to travel around the world as much as possible.
I love adventures of all kinds - skydiving, scuba diving, hiking, etc., etc.
For as long as I can remember, music has been a passion of mine. Fiddled around with the guitar, piano and saxophone when I was a kid. But starting to (trying to, at least) produce music these days.
The career and hobbies I have chosen are exhausting though, so I always love to end my day by gorging on whatever food is in sight and having a glass of wine - or three.
P.S., I was a huge nerd in my past life so video games still have a special place in my heart - specifically CoD, BF, Madden, FIFA and GTA.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am couchsurfing because there's no better way to explore a country than to see it through a local's eyes. I credit my interactions with locals and other travelers to be the most meaningful and memorable experiences of my life, let alone my travels. Couchsurfing has made that all so easy!
Furthermore, I love to share thoughts and ideas on the human condition and the ubiquitous issues we all face. Of course, that's always most interesting when you talk to new people - who may, or may not have grown up so differently than you and may or may not see the world so differently than you.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I lived to tell the tale of how I hitchhiked back from a forest concert in the middle of nowhere, El Salvador. Surviving that felt pretty amazing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach how to cook. Primarily within my main staples - steak/burgers, chicken and eggs.
I can teach a little music theory and a little Russian.
I'd love to share all the crazy great (and bad) stories that I have under my belt from going abroad along with this particularly crazy year I have had.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share my eccentric sense of humor, my alcohol!, my Rachel Ray cooking skillz, my quasi-existential life philosophy
