About Me


I am a recent university grad from the US. I live in Benin, West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Adventure is a big part of my life, one of the reasons I decided to join the Peace Corps and move to a new continent. I love meeting people and exploring new places!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The best way to fully understand a new place is by staying with and talking to locals! There's no better way to do that than through Couchsurfing.


I have only couchsurfed once before in Iceland, but I want to change that. I met people from Iceland, Italy, and France and we rented a car together to drive around and explore together. I love hostels, however, I never would have gotten such an experience by staying in one.
My experiences with Couchsurfing helped me connect with new people and find new parts of Iceland that I would never have known.


I love to ballroom dance, Latin dance, and swing dance - pretty much all types of dancing. I enjoy meeting new people and going on spontaneous adventures.
