About Me


to free myself


I am focused internally, and have as a primary goal, to find ways that I can best serve humanity in during my short life. I am idealist and I relay on intuitive to guide towards my unwavering mission to free myself and others. I am a good listener, more then then a talker, and genuinely interested in understanding people, though I am reserved.


To be happy (truly) and joyous with every molecule of of our being and have that radiate outward to other people and the environment we live in. To know myself and understand the laws of nature.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have hosted and am a lover of CS! Can't wait til I can travel again.


Not yet sadly!


I am trained as an engineer but like to use skill that towards creating products and services towards the health and well being of communities in need. Currently I am living in a coop in Cambridge and work in clinical research in nephrology and neonates and planning my next step.
