About Me

Nonconformist, minimalist, free-thinking, free-spirited, former compulsive world wanderer who has settled in Tanzania for the last 2 years.

Permaculture and creating a self-sustaining life for myself close to nature which requires minimal money and minimal consumption/waste is my current mission...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've surfed quite a bit over the years, in Alaska, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark.... and I've hosted quite a few times as well in Puerto Rico, USA, and Morocco.

All of my couchsurfing experiences have been phenomenal-- nothing but positive ones. I've learned so much from all of the unique people I've met through this organization, Couchsurfing has only revealed to me the most beautiful side of humanity! :)


Nature. Building and creating. Sustainability. Permaculture. Art. Gardening. Cooking. Travel. Adventure. Natural medicine and alternative styles of healing. Mountains. Trees. Friendly animals :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning about other peoples stories, traveling helps me realize what unifies us all as a human race, learning the similarities and opening up to new ideas and new ways of life
