About Me


To seize every small moment.


I grew up in Kentucky and spent the majority of my adult life thus far as an entertainer in Louisville, KY. After five years as a dancer, I needed a break from a kentucky so I did my research, packed my bags for my first cross country backpacking trip, and headed to Washington for the Annual Rainbow Gathering. I ended up heading down the coast to the redwoods and have been traveling off and on since then for the past threeish years. My travels have brought me to Oregon Country Fair, Burning Man, multiple Rainbow Gatherings, hot springs, the ocean, many hip cities, and everywhere I go I always meet so many amazing, wonderful people, all of whom I hold close to my heart!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've not had much experience with


Most of my experience couch surfing has been with 'strangers' I have met and formed friendships with while hitch hiking (although rare) or through/at Rainbow Gatherings. I have actually used once in San Fran and was hosted by the amazing Sid, who is now my one and only friend on CS lol. It was a great experience and I hope to have many more like it in the future.

Music, Movies, and Books

Hand to Mouth to India is a real life story of a man who hitch hiked from England to India. with no money. This book is my original inspiration for my own cross country backpacking experience.

Blind Melon is my favorite band...

I was five the first time my stepdad played Pink Floyd's 'Delicate Sound of Thunder' for me. I literally cannot remember music existing in my life before that but being in love with music ever since then.

books: the vagina monologues, trainspotting, tao of pooh, all my friends are dead, all my friends are still dead, the zombie apocalypse survival guide, hand to mouth to india

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I posed for a series of art classes at an art museum, Museum 21c Louisville.

There is a drawing based off me in a German text book- done by one of the professional artists I met at 21c whom I had a working relationship with).

Plantain weed (short) cures poison ivy outbreaks. Rub the plantain between your fingers until you feel the oil break out of the leaf, then rub it on the blisters!
