About Me

I am a graduate student at the University of Arizona and will be in the Bay Area this summer (2016). Looking for friendly, fun homes or a quiet place to work.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on a limited budget and wanted to get the chance to see different neighborhoods in the Bay Area.


I'm learning to play the banjo, though if you don't want to hear it I won't practice in your house. Lots of repetition right now.
