About Me


I like making pictures, watching heat lightning, writing letters and sometimes eating peanut butter with a spoon. I enjoy making people feel a little uncomfortable. I don't like when my leg falls asleep or eating at chain restaurant. I'm one of those who lives to work because I love what I do. I enjoy creating experiences for people, stretching, eating vegetables, dancing, moving, growing, questioning, and spending time outside the lines.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I bounce around when I can usually without much notice.

I'm open to show you around Gainesville if I'm here and lend a couch if it's available.


Film, photography, cooking, yoga, night adventures, day adventures, adventures and beer :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I started a photo blog called My First Rodeo that showcased my life of experimenting with the world. It was made to inspire people to get uncomfortable. You can check it out at
I studied and worked as an international correspondent in Istanbul, turkey, explored culinary study throughout France and Monaco, helped set up a makeshift newsroom in a homeless shelter in Hollywood. Every day is more incredible than the last.

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe that it's the people who make the place. Learning anything from someone who lives in the community I'm traveling through is an invaluable way to see the world.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, France, Haiti, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Turkey
