About Me


meet people


I love learning and experiencing new things.
I'm a couch surfing junkie.


I take from both the logical positivists and the phenomenologists, it's valuable to both model and experience reality

couchsuring if about destroying your preconceived notions

kill people with kindness

My beautiful house in Rochester, where I attend school

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the moon hanging over Santorini, illuminating the entire island

backpacking for a week on the Appalachian Trail, mid Vermont to northern Massachusetts; the experience of being completely removed from society

standing at the edge of an Andean mountain watching the clouds envelope the surrounding mountains

literally stuck in an ocean of Czech people during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Prague

Galapagos islands

watching the sunrise from a hot air balloon over the great Serengeti
