About Me


making the most of my time in a new city, country, continent


It seems kind of ridiculous to try and sum myself up in a few sentences on a couchsurfing profile...but here goes:

I'm laid back, enjoy the finer things in life(frisbee, music, photography, etc.), and love to learn from and meet people from various cultures.


I think Garth Algar said it best:

"Live in the now."


language, food, music, frisbee(ultimate and golf), meeting people, exploring new cities, etc.

  • photography
  • dining
  • socializing
  • music
  • golf

Music, Movies, and Books

too many to list, honestly.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A week and a half after arriving in France for the first time, I was hit by a car. I was in the hospital for the next three weeks with a broken leg, undergoing three surgeries and months of physical therapy. As a result, I met some of the most amazing people and, oddly enough, couldn't be happier that it happened.
