About Me

I recently graduated from Wash U in St Louis where I studied Computer Science and Creative Writing. Now, I'm a freelance software engineer. I like to spend my free time doing anything active in the outdoors. I love exploring, going on roadtrips, learning new things, hanging out with friends, and watching movies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing because I traveled around world from October 2016 to May 2017. Along the way, the gift of Couchsurfing in Singapore and Chile led to fantastic experiences. I still love to Couchsurf.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I took a gap year and got a round-the-world plane ticket, which I used over the course of 7 months. I went to Israel, Jordan, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru. I met lots of amazing people along the way, wwoofed, couchsurfed, learned scuba diving, and more.
