About Me


I'm currently working as a developer for a software company in Cambridge while trying to decide whether I want to attend graduate school after recently graduating with Bachelors degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't yet had the opportunity to participate, but am interested in hosting. I don't currently have the flexibility to travel on a regular basis, so I figure that meeting people from other places visiting the Boston area will have to be good enough for now.


I don't have any couch surfing experience through the site, but have crashed on friends couches and had friends crash on my couch.


I'm interested in a variety of "computery" things. Listing them in detail would probably bore most readers, but if you're curious about whether I'm interested in particular things, just ask.

For fun, I fly sport kites, read, listen to music, and play board/card/dice games. I'm also in the process of learning card magic and lock picking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite movies include Serenity, Memento, Donnie Darko, Primer, The Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight, Fight Club, WALL-E, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Hotel Rwanda, District 9, V for Vendetta, Children of Men, 300, How to Train Your Dragon, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

I like pretty much any and all music. I particularly enjoy electronica (particularly trance); I enjoy listening to it while doing work.

My favorite books include Douglas Adam's The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series, The Kite Runner, Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth series, almost anything by Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game specifically), Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings series, Einstein's Dreams, Longitude, the Bourne series, anything by Neal Stephenson, and what I've read from Harkui Murakami.
