Experience life to teach the experience to future generations. Always welcome the wisdom of those who are more experienced.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had an awesome opportunity to surf across the southwest US when I did a 5 week roadtrip. Haven't had the chance to host yet but would like the opportunity to.

I love meeting the local people around the places I meet. I find that they can offer better insight to the places I visit and the culture of the city than the other Americans I meet in hostels.


Surfed on couches on a solo roadtrip across the US. Had the opportunity to host a few people traveling in the are as well.


Hiking, camping, tennis, swimming, tv, movies, photography, intellectual discussions, meeting people, sharing knowledge and experiences
