About Me


To see all that I can and find what makes my heart race


I make pictures, I make music, I write things. I have a dog that is my child, a sister who is my best friend, a best friend who is my sister, and an old car that if required I could put everything I love in and drive off. I have recently rediscovered my love of adventure and exploring and that makes it difficult to sit still. I spend my time working (lame but true), photographing, singing, learning guitar, hiking, eating, and constantly searching for the best beer and the coolest place to wash my hair.


Some of the most beautiful things in life happen entirely by accident, I live to leave myself open to those accidents.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed a number of times with my best friend and have never found any experience more intriguing or delightful. Being invited into someone's home is a beautiful experience and truly shows how kind a place the world can be.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent a day swimming in the Galápagos Islands, started by playing with a sea lion who wanted to be my friend, and ended swimming with over 200 Galápagos sharks who taught me that maybe some places can in fact be in perfect balance.

Teach, Learn, Share

The people around me are a constant reminder that there is so much to know and see, everyone has different knowledge to share with you and different lessons to teach, what you have for me is not what I have for you, that is the beauty of humans and the beauty of interaction, lets learn something together.
