About Me


To vote for Obama


With a life full of activity it is so hard to narrow everything down. For starters: I am a very laid back individual who loves to cook and read and on and on. I grew up on the rainy side of Oregon, but received my college education surrounded by the rolling wheat fields of Moscow, ID. As you get to know me you will come to find I am soft spoken but not shy, I have a dynamic personality and I am a lot of fun to be around. Give me a try and you'll find it is all true!


Good things come with time, but the truly extraordinary come all at once.

There are things in life unavoidable and uncontrollable. It is when we throw ourselves into life with this understanding, with control and inhibitions set aside, we know we are living.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently looking for a couch and a willing host to help me out in my upcoming trek through Thailand.


none yet! But I am hoping this will change!


When it comes to politics I am not much use. One of my favorite ways to pass time is having people over for diner, drinks, and a good chat.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably not the most amazing thing I have ever done but probably one of the scariest: I bungy jumped in Taupo, New Zealand. When it came time for me to jump off the ledge my survival instincts kicked in and I couldn't budge. No matter what I was unable to force myself to jump. Finally one of the bungy employees had to push me off.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning how to cook. I find throughout my travels and encounters this is something I am always drawing from and sharing with other people.
