About Me


To live a full life and be a positive influence on the world.


I am a curious person. I love to experience new things and learn new things, and what better way to do that than to travel. I prefer to experiences places as locals do, from the food, to the social scene to the language. I am a big fan of cities and the wilderness. I also love the simple things in life- good food, good conversation, a beautiful sight or a good laugh. Cooking is one of my passions and I would love to learn some of your favorite recipes or cook for you.


My personal philosophy on life is to continually strive for growth and also help foster the growth of others. This comes through love, experiencing new things, challenges and having fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host when I can, not that many people come through Stamford! Tried to surf when traveling in South America, but it didnt work out. Planning on surfing this summer in the Pacific Northwest.
