About Me

Hi! So in between long stints of traveling, I live on lovely Long Island in New York.

When I'm home, my place is open to respectful guests who do not treat Couchsurfing as a free hotel, but as a convenient cross-cultural experience. Of course if you're in a desperate situation please don't hesitate to ask if I can help you out in some way.


What can i say? i'm an easy person to get along with. I love to cook, snowboard, swim, explore, drink, etc..

Moving around is a lifestyle for me.


Try to eat plants.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's great meeting people from all over.


I enjoy all sports: biking, snowboarding, swimming, soccer, football, climbing, whatever. I'm also great at sitting around and being lazy.
