About Me

I have lived in California my whole life with a few journeys out of the country. I enjoy reading, painting and conversation with good food and drink. I am outgoing and also enjoy silent time to myself. My ideal day is spent exploring, learning about culture and finding ways to paint my new understandings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I will be exploring France with my younger brother (23) Logan from July 13th- July 29th. We want to experience as much culture as possible and meet new people so we decided not to stay in a hotel or hostil.


sharing art in all mediums, developing new perspectives, trivia, painting portraits for people that don't sit still, jumping into rivers, humor, sharing music and performance art.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

being able to teach high schoolers art is the most amazing thing I have done yet.
I've seen India and that shook me as well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share the passion and insights I have gained in painting and prose.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to paint your portrait for a night or two's stay.
