About Me

Check out my awesome site GoGreaterGood.com :)

Everything is impermanent so don't get too caught up in anything!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I have hitchhiked 4 separate trips back around 2008-2011. I learned SO much through this... and I have been very grateful of anyone who has helped me along, which most definitely has included a couchsurfing host here and there along the way. My most recent trip, was a 1,000 mile walk in 2013, in which a few couchsurfers helped me as well.

On the flip side, I do not host many people directly through this site, as I live in a town that not many people pass through. And also since those I live with are not the couchsurfing types. BUT, instead, I do lots of volunteer work, most recently as an overnight homeless shelter host, and at an after-school program for elementary school students. As you will see on my website listed above, I make sure to help people at least once every week.

...I am on couchsurfing because I believe in community, and in helping others and in being helped, especially while traveling.

Interests

Guitar & jamming, skiing, skimboarding, animals, reading, hitchhiking, walking... I love adventure and trying new things :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hiking to the top of Angel's Landing at Zion National Park in Utah, was one of the scariest and most amazing things I have ever done. It was strenuous and I was EXTREMELY close to backing out when I got to the really scary parts, but I made it and got an incredible view and story :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I have played guitar for about 8 years and I am always happy to give beginner guitar lessons or to show someone who knows even just a little how easy it is to jam! I also know how to travel low budget and the ins and outs of hitchhiking!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Cooking/cleaning/whatever I can possibly help with! I feel much better when I am able to contribute so please put me to work in some way if possible ! I can also give you a guitar lesson, if you happen to have a guitar.
