About Me


Live for today, plan for the future


I am fun and think I'm funnier than I probably am. I have some great friends who I don't get to see as much as I should. I'm a new dermatologist in San Diego.


Live like you're dying.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a lot of people over the years, mostly in Pittsburgh. I hunkered down for 3 years of dermatology residency before moving here in August. I am active in a lot of Meetups here and have a cadre of awesome friends here in San Diego.

I promise my response rate will improve. I got on some nonsense list in Dallas and couldn't handle all of the messages.


Food, wine, basketball, football, science. But most of all- interesting, funny, sexy people.
Like most CSers, I'm all about the experience and love doing anything a little unusual.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge fan of Modest Mouse, Louis Armstrong, Bloc Party, Josh Ritter, Fiona Apple, and anything that can be karaoke'd. The Sword in the Stone (yes the Disney movie) was my #1 inspiration growing up. Guests are expected to sing along if we ever were to watch this (shouldn't come to that).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw an iceberg fall over Niagara falls once. Oh and I guarded LeBron James once back in Y2K. Cared for leprosy patients in India. Mmm more recently I filed a patent on something very very cool (shhh).

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a really good cook and will happily learn or teach some kitchen skills. If you're a cyclist, please teach me how to fix bikes!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A gregarious fat cat, a clean place, a comfy couch or bed, walkability to the beach, and some grilling.

Countries I’ve Visited
