I'm full of contradictions. I love being in cities, but don't like being far away from the mountains. I like to be able to carry on intelligent conversation, but also like to do so in an extremely low register.
My friends would definitely describe me as calm and laid-back.
Also, I love to eat. If traveling, I can easily plan a couple of days around trying out the local food scene.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm new to Couchsurfing. I biked across the US in 2009 and stayed with some hosts through Warmshowers.org, a site that's specifically set up for touring cyclists. Had some wonderful experiences doing that, so I decided to try Couchsurfing for this road trip.
I love bicycles, cooking, traveling and swimming.
I am moving into a new career in data privacy, working with companies to comply with international data protection laws and keep the trust of their customers. I love this field because it's complex and constantly evolving, but it's something everyone experiences first hand (Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, anyone?)
Music, Movies, and Books
Bob Dylan and The National
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I bicycled across most of the US in 2009. It was incredibly challenging and awe-inspiring at the same time.
Also, watching the sun set from an island in the middle of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
