About Me


To get a shade tanner...


I am studying Architecture and just got done taking a year off to work in Tokyo and Shanghai...It was awesome. Now I have a pretty sweet job for the summer working in Greece on an archaeological dig. Until that starts I plan on exploring the beauties of Tuscany.

I dream of hiking the AT (US mountain rain trail along the eastern coast), living on a house boat, climbing, and throwing my phone away. That or at least summer and drinking on a terrace.


Embrace the seemingly mundane, its where the true passion for life is found!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love listening to people's experiences around the globe but also trying to catch the local flavor of whichever city I happen to be in. I rally love to talk about Japan and China as well...

I would also be happy to share any drawings I produce on my trips (which I hope to do plenty of)


China and Japan
Playing sports
Outdoorsy stuff. I was a counselor at an outdoors camp for two summers, so I am game for anything. I love hiking swimming, camping, cycling

I enjoy a wide range of things and feel happy in most situations! I love to laugh and enjoy great conversation with interesting people.

Music, Movies, and Books

When it comes to music, I run all over the place. I am always excited to find new bands and rediscover old bands. Oh and any 90's throwbacks...

I like books. Unfortunately they are too heavy to carry while backpacking and I absolutely hate the idea of reading on a kindle!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cliff jumping 30m on a dare

Watching the sunset and sunrise from the dolomites in Italy.

I recently climbed Mt. Fuji in shorts with my friends. To say we were ill prepared is an understatement. We froze, but saw the most beautiful sunrise on a spectacularly clear day from 4000 m. Also cup of ramen never tasted so good as it did there that morning!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am good at laughing at myself, drawing, making up my own lyrics to songs, Aussie accents...

I love to cook, but may not be particularly amazing at it, though always willing to help out and learn (cooking, cleaning, and of course cleaning).

Countries I’ve Lived In
