About Me

CURRENT MISSION

the more you know, the more you know

ABOUT ME

Hello!

Just finished my architecture degree. Originally, I'm from the lovely land of Kentucky, but for the past few years I've been living in the Bay Area. I love exploring new places by bicycle. Lifelong vegetarian/vegan up until 2 years ago, & learned to love seafood while popping around Spain, one tapa at a time...

For what it's worth, I pick dogs over cats, Stones over the Beatles. Three things that'll get me talking are the Kentucky landscape (I'm a sucker for my Bluegrass), contemporary urban design, and the Talking Heads. I love traveling and keeping track of all of my adventures via sketchbook and black pen. Ciao-

PHILOSOPHY

keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'll host you if you ever need a place to crash near San Francisco. I was raised on Southern hospitality, so you'll be sure to get fresh towels, hot coffee, and fun high-energy company while you're with me!

If you host me, I'll cook you the best American breakfast you've ever seen. Also, I've been known to write elaborate thank-you notes that often include sketches & art pieces...
