About Me


To embrace life, and change the world, even in a small way


I am an avid wanderer. I move from state to state in the US and spend every extra dime I have on going new places. I'm in the process of finishing my undergraduate degree in Ecology and bio-statistics. I have a passion for all things wild and off the beaten path. Animals are my one and only real love! Especially birds, I work avian research in Wilmington and spent the summer in Peru doing just that (conservation research) in the jungle. I really seek to embrace what I have and get the most out of this beautiful life.


All good things are wild and free

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately all of my extra funds go toward paying for school and travel, and so I currently live with my parents in Wilmington! So I have no couch to offer at the time sadly


I have only used couchsurfing once so far in Washington DC and I was so happy with my experience!


Travel, conservation, running, animals, soccer

Music, Movies, and Books
