About Me


Understand nature and complexity. Complete my PhD. Continue to learn, grow, and connect with new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've couchsurfed on and off since 2009. I haven't been able to host much due to roommate/landlord preferences.


Couchsurfed while backpacking in Europe as well as during a road trip across the USA including West Virginia, Kentucky, and Utah. When I moved to Olympia WA, I couchsurfed for about a week before finding a place to live. Stayed friends with a family who hosted me and regularly went back fro dinner, game nights, and dog sitting.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Grew up on emo/alternative rock, went through a strong indie and folk phase, branched out to hip hop and electronic music. So now I like a little bit of everything. Also music that fits the dance styles I'm learning so some pop for West Coast Swing and the sweet sounds of Prince Royce and Romeo Santos for Bachata

Books: Science Fiction and Fantasy Currently working through Max Gladstone's Craft Sequence. Really love Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i've been caught up in both buffalo (yellowstone) and caribou (alaska) stampedes.
