About Me


its hard to have a favorite place til you've seen 'em all, one day I'll compile a list of my favorites...


Half Greek, half yanki. Born and raised in the States. Swaying between long stints of nomadic-ness interspersed with more static periods in various cities.


enjoy life while you can... because we all have an expiration date

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS has blessed me with the pleasure of knowing incredible people all over the world... and introduced me to great friends, who are like family, who will be in my life forever.


many more than can fit into a tiny box. But I quite enjoy hammocks and live music in the summer, skiing and reading novels in cozy places during the winter, drive-in movies, sitting outside on warm nights, beautiful views, long weekend impromptu trips, games...especially those that involve gambling for interesting stakes, and sending/ receiving postcards
