Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Eric’s full profile.
I'm a journalist who just moved to Durham, NC after long stints in NYC, Beijing, Nanjing, and Kansas City (my hometown). I'm now working on a book that necessitates travel to universities across the country, so I love meeting up with locals for drinks or other fun activities when I'm on the road. Would also love to meet up with anyone around the Triangle area in NC--I work remotely at home most days, so always in the mood to get out and be social!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
