About Me


To be a better cser. I am traveling with my dog, Tessa, in France.


Born and raised in Texas, educated in Virginia, I have lived mostly in New York, but have also lived in LA and San Francisco. Currently live in Chicago, but am choosing to escape the winter and summer this year. Seasoned traveler always looking forward to seeing and experiencing new countries. And new regions of countries that I am already familiar with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am traveling with my dog, Tessa. Because I joined after I left home, I will not be able to host surfers until I return, so for the time being,I will be surfing between jobs in Europe.


I started surfing in January along the Florida coastline until I reached Miami. Now I am in Europe traveling with my small dog, Tessa, which has been challenging but fun.
