About Me

CURRENT MISSION

We’re backpacking through western Europe before heading off to grad school. We want to meet new friends around the world and discover new ideas.

ABOUT ME

We first met during our undergrad years at Princeton University and have been together for over three years. Daniel grew up in Halifax, Canada but has a very confused accent due to his British upbringing. Devin is from Avon, CT. We graduated together in June this year. In the fall Devin is starting a PhD in Social Psychology at Cornell and Daniel is beginning a PhD in Economics at Harvard.

We're taking advantage of our last free summer to travel together through Western Europe! We're looking forward to unforgettable experiences and interesting people. We're fun, easygoing, adventurous, caring, and helpful. We look forward to getting to know you!

PHILOSOPHY

Do what your love.

Devin: "There i™s no cure for curiosity€€“." -Dorothy Parker

Daniel: €œ"Life is what happens while you a€™re busy making other plans€€“." -John Lennon

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We're looking to travel couch surfing-style this summer as we backpack through western Europe. We'll offer our own couches when we get home in the fall in both Ithaca, NY, and Boston, MA!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We’re starting our official couch surfing journey this summer, but we’ve really enjoyed having old friends stay on our couch for years now. We think it will be a great way to meet new friends too!
