About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live simply, not quietly.

ABOUT ME

You travel, I travel, we're going to get along swimingly!I live in Copenhagen but my passport says "United States of America" complete with bald eagle. I'm easy to spot here in Denmark - I'll be the only one jaywalking. I am a student. I study cities - their design, politics, sociology, and economics. Trying to understand new cities is half the reason I travel. An afternoon walk through a new city beats any museum!I adore stimulating debates with people that respectfully disagree with me - it's the best learning opportunity I can find.

PHILOSOPHY

In a pinch, I resort to "fuck it, rock and roll" as a pretty solid philosophy. On a more long term basis, I believe avoiding comfortable situations makes people grow. Discomfort spurs new perspective, appreciation, and compassion (My couch does not apply here).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
