About Me

Art. Food. Fitness. Healthy living. Exploration.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting open-minded people who are proud of where they're from. Sharing stories. Hotels are overrated. Music sharing. Friendships. Real surfing is harder.


Painting, photography, video, sports, SPICY foods, history, dancing, reading, films, cycling, cities, a little gardening, NBA, NPR, DIY, etc. I co-host a podcast: #DabblinDribblin

Music, Movies, and Books

Books, films, music, podcasts... let's talk.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking alone in India for two months.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm an open-minded person who will talk about anything. I'm very comfortable with who I am. I love to paint, photograph and explore. I am a sports fan, particularly with basketball and US football, although I don't get crazy about it. Any chance I get to try new foods, i take it, and I love sharing with good company.

What I Can Share with Hosts
