CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

My closest friends would definitely say that I'm an adventurous person who's down for exploring and taking any opportunity to go on an outdoor adventure.I love to meet people from all walks of life who have a good story to tell :)

PHILOSOPHY

Currently trying to embrace simplicity and be happy with what I'm given, harder than you'd think considering I'm human

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm currently studying in Santa Cruz, CA, and just returned from traveling around Asia. I don't have my own home or couch to host, but as soon as I do I'm hosting.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed all over Turkey, Lebanon, and Thailand and met amazing people in the process. Next destination: Morocco.

Science, running, nature, random facts, the ocean, art, beautiful music and instruments, reading, thought-provoking conversations, other people, climbing, tripping, learning, homeless people, religions, history

Music, Movies & Books

Fight Club, Requiem For A Dream, Memento, Blow, Donnie Darko, Steinbeck, Chuck Palahnuik, Kerouac, Vonnegut, Slightly Stoopid, Trevor Hall, indie music

Give me a book, movie, or song and I'll probably have something good to say about it

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seen the mountains of northern Pakistan, played the dejembe drum with random homeless people in the street, went to a turkish wedding in the middle of the mountains, got completely lost in the sierra nevadas, lived and climbed in yosemite, jumped off a cliff, went Kayaking in the Marmarus, hot air ballooning in central Turkey, slept on a beach in Thailand, traveled alone in Asia for 4 months and loved every second of it

many to be added some day
