Figure out what I want in life
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).
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!
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.
Sustainable Business Practices (triple bottom line, social enterprises, etc);
Gin & ginger ale with mint and a lime;
Keeping a journal of all books I've read and all wines tasted
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Harold and Maude is my number one! My next favorite is My Cousin Vinny.
Books/Authors: Tom Robbins, Biographies, Garcia Marquez, Chelsea Green Publishing
