About Me

In 2016 I started traveling, meeting crazy cool people and learning about couchsurfers. My stressful but profitable career in sales was starting to become boring. So I quit my job, sold all of my stuff and am going to travel. I see how so many others are doing it so easily by using many resources such as couchsurfers. Everything has happened so quickly. I became TEFL certified to teach English.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have a son who just moved away for college. Now I am left with severe wanderlust as well as had an empty bedroom. I heard of this website and love meeting new people and would love to plan a trip around Europe.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love house music: techno, tech house, minimal, deep house, indie house, classic hip hop

I don't read as much as I should but the last book I read was 50 shades of Grey. If you count audible it would be Just Mercy

My favorite movies are: Annie, goonies, stand by me, lost boys, forgetting Sarah Marshall, Good Will Hunting, and Eat, pray, love
