About Me


Explore life, learn constantly, expand my horizons


I love the experience of moving to a new place an meeting new people nearly as much as connecting with friends closest to me.
I'm not sure what I want out of life right now. I guess I'm on the fragile edge of having to do for the "rest of my life", being unsure if my choices now are leading me in the direction I really want to go, and still having a sliver of time to seek out new possibilities.
There are very few experiences in life I will say no to as I love to try new and different things.
While going out and enjoying the night life with friends is definitely one of my favorite activities, I equally enjoy staying in and drawing or sitting outside and just enjoying the day.


Try not to take life far to seriously while still understanding ever breath has an impact.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've met so many great people through it for dinner and hanging out while traveling! I hosted quite a bit when I lived in Paris and met some amazing people that I stayed with in other countries too.

The liklihood of hosting people in Idaho is much much smaller, but we're close to Yellowstone and a lot of cool places!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I ate a sea urchin while snorkeling in Hawaii. I had an allergic reaction to it and nearly went to the hospital. Some might have learned about consequences of actions or to look before you leap. I learned not to each raw sea urchins and laughter makes you feel better.

I finished my nuclear engineering degree then packed up an moved to France without knowing anyone here and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Teach, Learn, Share

Sometimes I feel restless for no apparent reason, like I should be elsewhere doing something bigger and better than I am now, or like time is passing by way to quickly. I want to learn if others feel the same way and how to harness, contain, or explore that restlessness.

I hope to share a smile, laugh, and a conversation.
