About Me

I'm a 27-year-old American who loves to travel and meet people from all around the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've hosted a few times, surfed a few times, and gone to a bunch of fun meetups. Every CouchSurfing experience I've had has been a great experience, so I want to keep going!
