About Me

Travel the world.

My profile is in the process of being verified. I just have to wait for the post card to show up with the code on it.
I love meeting people! Having exciting friendships is important to me. I feel drawn to all kinds of people and places. I'm easy going and very interested in how people live their lives. I have a little experience on the road but not enough. I've now visited over 70 cities in EU and the surrounding countries. It's unreal. I don't really know where I got the energy for all of it but I can say the addiction to seeing new realms never ends. I am living in Edinburgh for the month of August and then setting off for France. CS is something that gives you so much appreciation for other people. I'm grateful for this site.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A wonderful woman in Weed, Ca gave me a spot for a week. She is amazing. A nice guy in Beaverton, Or hosted me for a weekend.
I stayed in both Castro Valley and San Leandro with terrific families in the spring.
I've now stayed with a great hosts in Germany, France and Spain. Can't wait to have more visits with fellow travelers and just good peeps in general.
I've had wonderful experiences in Manchester on CS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent three months in Guatemala, spending time in beautiful Antigua. While there, I got to experience the local lifestyle and briefly volunteered at a nutrition center holding malnourished babies while they recovered. I have a passion for that country and hope to see South American countries specifically Peru and Chile this winter. Let me know if you want to go together.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to teach English at some point.
Also, I'd like to continue studying Epigenetics and Nutrigenomics when I return from traveling.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to eat meals together. I'm very happy to go for walks and have long chats. Being part of the household is lovely and appealing. I like to grocery shop and create healthy meals. I'm totally interested in hearing about new cultures.
