About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Adventure through the world and work toward makeing it a better place.

ABOUT ME

I'm a human, a vegetarian, a writer and an NGO development specialist. I've hosted a LOT of Csers, more then 350, mostly in a communal setting. They tell me I am full of energy but also a very laid back/free spirit person. Personally I think I have a really far journey ahead of myself to become a free spirit. By traveling the world and getting the chance to meet and be open to many people I hope to become more of a free spirit.

And my blog at http://www.yourworldyourhome.com

I grew up in rural america in a very poor communal setting. As such I love not spending much money, being with the poor and wretched of the world, and seeing every inch of the that world I can.

PHILOSOPHY

Harm nothing, take nothing, only give.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I did a lot of hosting, lots of it long term hosting(i prefer that the most), helped many CSers get jobs and volunteer positions in Phnom Penh, and I've helped show so many around and helped them see the love in others. The I started Hitch hiking the world and surfing with lots and lots of awesome people, and I found out there is even more love in the world then I could ever have guessed. Now I am living in GZ china hopping to host at least 100 more great souls before I move on.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first host was Peak. I went to her place after stayingo at a guest house for one terrible night. She was a non- conventional CS host, hosting a horde of people and not just a few. During the 10 days I stayed with her I had the opportunity to interact with many surfers, learn about their travel and travel around Bangkok with them. Ever since this I've enjoyed Couch Surfing. I had the chance to recreate what Peak created. I got a massive house and hosted 250+ csers.

Interests

People! Human Rights. Hugs (I think we should all feel free to hug one another). Democracy. Equal Opportunity. Water. Candy. Smiles.
