About Me


2012... get er done!!!!


I am a outgoin person who gets my kicks from the ppl around me...I am coasting through life at the moment, came down to south america for 3 month backpackin adventure and ended up burning my ticket back... Currently studying spanish in Cusco... I feel like I am too young to settle dowm into a career and the obligations that comes wit it... I dont feel the need to do the traditional family life so I am takin this time to better understand myself and the world... Want to explore all that I can.. Eventually hope to find a place I love with a stable counterpart and to become a foster parent... Until then, I live everyday like it could be the last!!


You cant judge something till you ve tryed it... Learning through experience, espcially the hard way, leads to ups and downs and will make for a well rounded person... Havin no expectations means im never disappointed... Fear and regret are lifes greatest vices...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believe in the community of travelers couch surfing supports... It is a great way to understand what living in other places is like because you surround yourself with ppl who are part of that city...


Ive had 2 surfing experience and love that they provide great insite to a new city, its a exciting experience plus you make new friends...I have not hosted any surfers but when my circumstance allows for it, I will!! Its random and I like that :)


Sun, sand, and water are probably my fav 3 pack... Throw in a few cold ones and I need nothing more... Other interests include camping, longboarding, music (hip hop, reggeaton, country), travel, yoga, science, snowboarding, writing, sleeping, cheese, dancing....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking the juan de fuca trail: seen a pod of killer whales and a sea lion with her pup, all from my tent on the side of the ocean, while being in bear in couger country...
Lived in a car/camped for 6 weeks with 2 other ppl...
Explored the Canadian tar sand: this was amazing but not in a plesent way...
Judge at 23rd Cannabis Cup: no explaination needed...
Machu pichu: lives up to the expectation, incas were fuckin briliant...

Teach, Learn, Share

Being fun and open minded are some of my best features... I am a great listener and find ppl often know the answers to their own problems, they just dont have someone to throw thoes ideas around with... Living to be happy is my main objective... I want to learn more self disipline and how to put that to practice in my daily life...
