About Me


To fill my life with the things that last forever: fun, love, and a bit of adventure.


I'm a young professional living in Madison. I would say that I am a fun-loving and laid back person who is really up for almost anything. I really enjoy getting to know people one on one through interesting conversation and a few good laughs. Making people smile makes me very happy. I am pretty impulsive and like keeping people on their toes, and I like going on adventures. I love kayaking, camping, and being outside in general. I really love traveling. Even so, I am completely dedicated to my family and friends.


Life is an occasion. Rise to it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I organize a monthly CS Happy Hour - we try to go to a new place each month. I admin our local Madison CS Facebook group, I update our Madison CouchCrash website, and I am one of the admins for the Madison Couchsurfing Instagram page. I like staying active in the local events in Madison and keep up with the Madison CS crowd because they're pretty awesome. I also have been a main organizer for the Mad City Couch Crash since 2014. I also surf and host on occasion, but I'm hoping to host much more this coming year!


Hosted and surfed mainly in the US. So far, having an awesome time!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a Madison local from birth, so I really love sharing my favorite local spots and knowledge. Please ask!! I also really love craft beer and work at a brewery part time - if you're interested in grabbing a pint, I'm always down! Otherwise, check out the Madison CouchCrash website for exceptional dining options and information on transportation to Madison:
