About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a traveler at heart and love meeting people, sharing stories, learning languages and seeing new places. I guess I'm not terribly different than most people on Couch Surfing for that reason. After I finished undergrad when I was 22, I moved to Puerto Rico for a year. After that, to Peru for year, and since then I've been spending about half a year out of the US and the other half earning the money to fund the travels. I've spent the past year saving up for what is going to be an epic adventure, and my longest backpacking stint yet: Six months through Asia, starting in Moscow on the Trans-Siberian railroad. I hope you see you all along the way!

PHILOSOPHY

Not all who wander are lost

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted many people during my time in Puerto Rico especially. In Peru I was not able to offer a couch, and the sheer number of tourists coming to Machu Picchu was overwhelming. In Pittsburgh I have met many wonderful people through Couch Surfing. I hope to Couch Surf my way through Asia on my upcoming trip.
