About Me


50 states in 50 weeks. Check out my progress at:

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


I'm awesome. I'm funny and artsy and kind. I like to make new friends, 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 and every way I can.

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'm really passionate about social justice. I'm a book worm. I LOVE Harry Potter. I like being happy.

Things that make me happy: reading (especially Harry Potter), drawing, painting, anything that fuels my creativity really, theatre, dancing (especially ZUMBA), meditating, yoga, being goofy, and telling corny jokes. I collect playing cards.

Music, Movies, and Books

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

Music: I have an extremely eclectic taste, it really depends on my mood, or what's happening around me. Sometimes on a given day I listen to anything from: The Shins to Zac Brown Band, or musical soundtracks to Tchaikovsky.

Currently my most recently played artists are:
Something Corporate, The Shins, Matt Nathanson, Adele, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Taylor Swift, Death Cab for Cutie, The Killers, Howie Day, Brand New, Straylight Run, Rent, Jason Mraz, and Mumford & Sons

Books: I dig classic literature. Generally stuff that is referenced in pop culture - I like being in the loop.
Favorites: Love in the Time of Cholera, The Alchemist, Harry Potter series (Prisoner of Azkaban if I had to pick just one), and the Unwind series.
Recently I've read: A Walk Across America, Times Like These, The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, The Alchemist, The Harry Potter series, The Divergent series, The Unwind series, and Pieces of Me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

At the beginning of my 50 States in 50 Weeks trip I woke up super early to watch the sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park in Maine. It's the first place you can see the sunrise in the United States. I was exhausted after staying up super late with my hosts the night before but it was totally worth it.

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. Laughter. English. Manual Labor.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bahamas, Canada, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
