About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Figure out what I want in life

ABOUT ME

My fiance and I met on couchsurfing three years ago in East Lansing MI and now live together in Chapel Hill NC. Since meeting, Jeff and I have lived in Ann Arbor MI, Detroit MI, Philadelphia PA, Pittsburgh PA, and Cape Town South Africa. We love traveling, but are equally excited to settle in North Carolina for a few years!

Good, high quality food is a priority in our household, and we enjoy cooking and baking whenever we get a chance. We are also interested in permaculture, natural house-building, beekeeping, delicious coffee, good beer, sustainability, and our impact on the world.

My strengths as an individual are: learner, input (craving to know more), individualization (intrigued with the unique qualities of each person), positivity, and woo (love the challenge of meeting new people).

PHILOSOPHY

Things happen for a reason!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing, meeting up with people when I travel for coffee or a drink, trying to have people stay with me!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met up with some people in Italy and when I was living in Detroit I was able to host and connect with people traveling through the area.
