About Me

After a very, very long hiatus from this site (I was most active from 2008-2013) I decided to fire it up again and see what it's like. That's probably why my response rate metrics look so bad. . .

I used CS a fair bit when I was traveling in India, the Dominican Republic, and China. I always had pretty good experiences with the site and the people I met on it, so hopefully that'll work as well in 2023 as it did back in 2013!

I'm very interested in foreign languages, and am generally a fan of interesting music, food, film, literature, and all of that stuff.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm not really in a position to host these days, but I've done a fair bit of traveling and living abroad, and am now happy to show travelers around Greater Boston and offer advice.


I'm interested in a lot of things, and my students used to refer to me as "walking Wikipedia" because I like to know something about everything, and everything about nothing.
