To not miss out.
I am a very laid back, curious person. Quiet at first, until I open up, but I like sparking up conversations with interesting people. I probably fit the profile of a lot of people on couch surfing; I like to go places. Anywhere, really. One of my favorite past times is getting in a car with my friends, or alone, and driving with the intention of losing track of where I am. It's really something to drive with no destination in mind.
I'm working downtown in Indianapolis for a company that helps Rolls-Royce with their aircraft engine design. Physics and math have always excited me, and I'm constantly curious about how things work and how they can work better. In my free time, I like to practice some circus arts, as I used to perform in a circus when I lived in Cincinnati. I started out as a unicyclist, but I've since picked up juggling and fire skills, among others.
So I know that you're actually reading this, please start out your first message with "Aloha". I like to know that guests have read my profile, as it shows they're interested in me as a person (since this is a big part of what couch surfing is all about!)
What drives me the most in life is FOMO, fear of missing out. The more I read and watch travel documentaries and hear stories, the more I realize how huge and diverse this planet is. It's unfortunate I won't be able to see it all, but I want to see as much of it as I can while I'm here.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I love meeting new people through couch surfing, and hope to use it now as a way to explore this city that's new to me. Of course, I know my neighborhood well enough, so if you need a solid recommendation, I could likely give it, but I'm always up or going to a new place!
I've couch surfed a few times with multiple hosts and have loved how personal it is. Having a local give you tips (or even a tour, if they're available!) is a fantastic way to experience a new city.

Teach, Learn, Share
As I dabble in circus arts, I can teach you some of the skills I've picked up during my time in the circus. They are as follows: juggling, unicycling, fire spinning, fire eating, slacklining and ballooning. I love sharing these skills wherever I go!
I'm interested in learning new recipes. I've very recently begun to discover how much I love to cook, and am very interested to see how different cultures cook. Any performance skills that I could be taught I would appreciate as well.
