About Me

My new mission is to get involved more in Denver community. (and to update my profile)

I like to think of myself as a traveler for it is one of my biggest passions in life. I think about travel all the time and I have lived and traveled to multiple locations around the world, and I can not get enough of it. I absolutely love life and discovering new places, like to enjoy and share new experiences with friends, and can't get enough of the world.

I returned to Denver a year ago and been enjoying the working world, so my travel has been non-existent, which is why I am staying in touch with this community - to help me fuel the passion of what really is important to me - and not to fall into this mundane rut of life.


Such an easy question to answer and a simple no brainer for anyone... NOT. Sometimes I wish my philosophy stated: "Introspection never done anyone any good" but I don't believe that at all. I try to enjoy life and not miss out on the greater things out there, knowing that greatness is a concept uniquely defined by each person.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have Couch Surfed and Couch Hosted multiple times, and I find the whole community and network really awesome!! It's a great way to travel, meet people, and experience the destinations through connecting with local people and community! Amazing way to learn, experience, see and love the world and the people in it!

Some day I want to make a long trip using couchsurfing alone, but so far my attempts weren't completely successful. Might happen on my next big trip. Who knows.


I got to meet some amazing people through this community. I have both hosted and surfed and it has been great every time. There are some amazing surfers and hosts out there, and I suggest you get out and find them and connect and have a blast out of sharing together.

All of my CS experiences have been great so far! I met great people, and made some really good friends. I am thankful for this community! I am so glad to have had the opportunity to connect with people through this site. I can't imagine not being part of the awesomeness that it is.


My greatest interests in life are Travel, Animals, Photography, Literature, and Outdoors.

I am super irrational when it comes to travel and am ready to go anywhere at any time! Love spontaneous traveling and though I like to think of myself as a good planner, most of my travels are usually planed last minute. I know everyone would say this, but there is not a corner of the world that I do not want to see.

I have been into photography since I was a child and been getting more into it the last few years. Have been taking lots of travel photos, as expected.

I love outdoors. Having lived in Colorado for a big portion of my life I'm addicted to beautiful outdoors, and consider Colorado to be one of the best States. (But I may be partial in my opinion.) I Love to Hike, and been really into Spelunking. I Enjoy spending time both in the city and country. To me they both have their own charm.

Music, Movies, and Books

I try not to spend too much time watching TV - hence the reason I do not own one, but I do enjoy a good movie. I am into a good mystery or a really great action movie. Any 007 movie! But of all the options animated movies are #1 on my list. Sounds childish? Maybe. I'm ok with that. And you have to admit they are great: Monsters Ink, Eldorado, Shrek, Madagascar, The Incredibles etc. Haven't had a chance to see some of the more recent ones but the day will come. Always up for a comedy and a good laugh.

I mostly try to stick to feel good happy ending movies. I enjoy shows as long as I have someone to watch/ follow them with. Cougar Town, Modern Family, Community, The Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother.

I've learned to appreciate almost every type of music, but I mostly stick to Pop/Rock, Hip-Hop, and Classical music.

I try to read a lot, and love a good book. Unfortunately, I buy books faster than I can read them and now have a library waiting for me every time I travel home. I am mostly interested in Classics, but been known to enjoy a science-fiction, detective stories, and history. Some of my favorite books are "Brothers Karamazov", "Tale of Two Cities", "Alexandria Quartet", "Kim". My favorite author is Gerald Durrell because of his light view and comedic look on everything,as well as the great appreciation for animals and their lives. Other favorite authors include: Dostoevsky, Hemingway, Dumas, Haggard, Wild, Tolstoy. I also write. Love to get suggestions on books and authors to check out.
