About Me


Take opportunities, live life for today and make worldwide friends


I am a person who works to travel. I teach high school and work with exchange students during the school year. I love the outdoors and sunshine, but live in a rainy area! I embrace cultural differences and enjoy learning about other places.


Live life now. As the saying goes: Life is not measured in the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away. I work to live to find those breathless moments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was providing a couch but now on the move. Haven't yet stayed with a CS person but would like to.


I am ready to start surfing and offer my couch.


I'm interest in cultural learning, photography, travel. Hiking and backpacking, kayaking, SCUBA are other interests that have caught my attention throughout life.
