Take over the world, one country at a time!! (or at least visit it...)
While in college, I got the travel bug during a summer in Guatemala and a semester abroad in Spain. After graduating from college, I worked in the pharmaceutical consulting industry for three years, but during the whole time I was working, I was always thinking in the back of my mind where my next trip would be.
I quit my job in 2011 and spent 13 months backpacking around Asia and Africa. I went back to work for the summer, but now am done again, and ready to do some more travelling.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've surfed in Valencia, Paris, L.A., Philadelphia, San Francisco, Montreal, Chicago, Mumbai, Udaipur, Nairobi, Bangkok, Saigon, Battambang, Kuala Lumpur, Yogyakarta, and Singapore. I've hosted various people from the US, Germany, Canada, Australia, France, Denmark, Italy and maybe a few other countries. I also am active in the Boston CS community, frequently going to meetings, parties, etc. I plan to meet up with the CS communities in all the cities I pass through during my travel.
Travel (of course), sports of any kind (either local Boston teams or big international tournaments), new adventures, good beer
- outdoor activities
- scuba diving
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Quit my job and backpacked for 13 months around Africa and Asia. Highlights include living with a Nepali family for a month and then trekking for 3 weeks in the Himalayas, spending the night looking down into the crater or an active volcano in the Congo, learning to SCUBA dive and then going diving in Sipadan. I could go on for a while...
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you about Boston, about the Red Sox, and how to play go. If we're camping at a meetup somewhere, I can teach how to build a fire, tie knots, and other useful outdoors skills.
