About Me


Explore and learn learn learn!


I'm a 20 year old college student studying English and Political Science. I'm about to embark on a month long study abroad in Ireland, followed by a solo backpacking trip through Western Europe. I love to meet people, learn about anything, and of course travel!


Curiosity killed the cat, good thing we're human! Let's talk about life together and try to solve its many mysteries until we realize, like so many before, that we never will.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfed with:
Denis in Brussels 1 night
Emmanuel in Paris 2 nights
Jeremy and Fiona in Bordeaux 3 nights


Reading, writing, talking, laughing, good beer, good wine, playing guitar, people who are as curious about everything as I am, hiking, researching random minutia, learning, politics, philosophy, discovering new music, feeling loved, living my life, following my bliss.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've climbed mountains, started revolutions in developing countries, and fended off seven ninjas with nothing but my bare hands and a half-eaten papaya.

And now since going to Pamplona, I have run with the bulls. (This one is real).

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm I can teach you guitar, I can analyze your favorite book until you don't like it anymore, teach you English, Hebrew, or the two words I know in Russian and Chinese. Probably some other things I can't think of right now

I would love to learn any other language, and how to cook :)
