About Me

Hi Couchsurfing world! I'm an avid traveler with 20+ countries and 35+ states visited so far. Clearly that's a hobby of mine and something I'm passionate about. Always interested in exploring new places and love anything outdoors, mainly hiking. I'd consider myself an open book and a very low-maintenance guest.

I was born in Cincinnati. Ohio and split growing up between there and Greensboro, North Carolina. I graduated from North Carolina State University in 2017, where I earned a bachelor's in Marketing. After that, I spent four years working in SEO, SEM & email/social media ads for a marketing agency in Columbus, Ohio following graduation. Since that position ended in 2022, I've been traveling around the US mostly in my car and campsites and visited 25 states (including Hawaii) last year alone. Currently establishing an LLC where I'll be able to accept private clients and continue my travels.

When I'm not on the road, I enjoy watching stand up comedy (Jimmy Carr is my favorite), checking out new breweries (always looking for a good Hazy IPA) and sports (Indianapolis Colts/Indiana Pacers/Ohio State Buckeyes). I'm currently based in Carmel, Indiana but am planning a road trip across the US this Spring!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Looking to meet fellow travelers during my own journey and, quite obviously, find somewhere to sleep and shower.
