About Me


50 states in 50 weeks.

Live Dream Love. To travel and experience life as others do, to be a citizen of the world and grow as a person.


I'm awesome. I'm funny and artsy and kind. I like to make new friends and go to new places and experience new things. I don't like to stay anywhere too long and I look forward to making the world a better place in any way I can.


live dream love. Live the Dream. Dream of Love. Love to Live.

"It's never too late to be who you might have been." - George Eliot

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm currently a surfer. I am living on the road attempting to visit all 50 states in 50 weeks and have no home to host in.

I used to live in rural Arkansas, but no one requested to stay with me when I lived there (shocking, I know!). So I haven't hosted yet, but I look forward to setting up a killer guest room wherever I end up after my trip (definitely somewhere people will want to visit this time) so I can host.


I've stayed with a number of Couchsurfing Hosts so far and all of them have been super amazing and wonderful people. I am so grateful for the opportunity to make new friends and exchange experiences and I look forward to meeting many more interesting people as my year visiting 50 States in 50 Weeks continues.


I really enjoy theatre of all kinds. I'm a book worm. I LOVE Harry Potter. I collect playing cards. I enjoy drawing, painting, being artsy in general, and making things aesthetically pleasing. I'm passionate about social justice. I like yoga and meditation. I enjoy ZUMBA and being goofy. I like being happy.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: V for Vendetta, 300, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Garden State, Away We Go

Music: I have an extremely eclectic taste, depending on my mood on a certain day it ranges from: The Shins to Zac Brown Band, musical soundtracks to Tchaikovsky.
Currently in my most recently played are:
Something Corporate, The Shins, Matt Nathanson, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Taylor Swift, Death Cab for Cutie, The Killers, Howie Day, Brand New, Straylight Run, Rent, Jason Mraz, Mumford & Sons

Books: I dig classic literature. Generally stuff that is referenced in pop culture - I like being in the loop.
Recently I've read: The Alchemist, The Harry Potter series, The Divergent series, The Unwind series, Pieces of Me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Niagara Falls in Canada and watched the sunrise. It was fantastic.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm good at arranging things compositionally and making things aesthetically pleasing from room furniture to elements of a home-made birthday card.

I want to learn how to cook/bake better. (I can make basics, but interesting, relatively easy/fast, and cheap dishes would be an awesome asset to my life.)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories. Art. Laughs. English. Manual Labor.
