Live my life. Be myself. Do what only I can do. See what only I can see. Be what only I can be.
Rambler. Physically and verbally, mentally perhaps. I'm on a trip. Trying to find passion, a place to explore and park myself for a little while, maybe even find a new job. Love traveling, but hey who doesn't (besides my mom, who actually couch surfed with me once!) I love eating. Food mostly, especially new stuff. I dig learning, about things that I find interesting, not so much typical school subjects. I'm athletic and adventurous, maybe even artsy if the mood strikes. I like people for the most part, but that's very conditional of course, not really the mean ones or overly arrogant, or sexist and etc :) but sometimes I try to work on the unconditional love thing...I think people really do like me, deep down.
Let's go sniff some flowers, eat some weeds and climb some trees. Or whatever other fun adventure you have in mind! Jump off big rocks into water?
I am here to love, to learn, to experience, to see, to grow to know. Nature is what is pure to me. Especially the parts least touched by us humans.
This is the only life we get. It deserves a conscious effort. Can't live it for anyone else. Find it. Live it! Sometimes looking inside ourselves is the hardest part. But in there, is our heart!
I painted "Kindness is Power" on a piece of pretty wood I got from the thrift store. I believe that...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Would love to meet up with fellow surfers when they come into town to hike, eat, hear each others' stories. When I wanna, I attend mixers and CS events. I share my house with people I've never met and surf the same.
First surfing experience was in New Zealand with 3 different, amazing hosts, actually 4 if you count the all Czech house(like 10 flatmates)in Queenstown where the 6 of us travel companions all slept in one full size bed! Unbeatable times at each place, from the food, the fun, and the camaraderie. Since, I hosted in Denver and surfed through NM, TX, UT, OK, TN...and took my mom on her first surf in Mobile, Al!
Travel, consciousness, culture, music, art, adventure, outdoors, plants, animals, playing sports, learning, challenging myself, being myself.
- outdoor activities
- bungee jumping
Music, Movies, and Books
Although I am not musically inclined, I love hearing it live...especially guitars and vocals around campfires!
Books... Be Here Now, Getting Stoned with Savages, Sing You Home, Eat Pray Love...and Into the Wild...these people inspire me, draw me in, and I feel there is a common thread...a spark.

Life. Simply put, the fact that I am alive, truly living. First one of my family to complete a college degree! Moved halfway across my country to a new state to live alone, with no roommates, for an internship(i knew 4 people in the state). Learning my independance and abilities. Once I helped pull a lady out of the sand at Virginia Beach, when she had sank almost up to her waist, waving her arms above her head, yelling for help, I was the first one to assist...someone's hero for the day =)
Teach, Learn, Share
Let's talk travel. Adventure. Nature. Plants and flowers. Earth. Existence. Infinity and beyond. Combine all that with delicious food and craft beer!
I feel I am a searcher. A wanderer. Aren't we all looking for something? If not, should we be? I like sharing stories, ideas, opinions.
I can teach basic juggling and hopefully make you laugh.
