About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying life in St Petersburg, Florida!

ABOUT ME

I'm originally from Ohio, went to college in Pittsburgh for 6 years, and then moved to St. Petersburg, FL for my first job and have lived there for over 6 years now! Loving the beach life and always finding something fun/random to do. Come visit and we will have some good times!

I am a pretty active person but am also very laid back. Always down for anything fun and traveling!

Adrenaline junkie- Always looking for a rush and to try something new! Still have lots more to go on the bucket list!!

Also a very proud Greek!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love meeting new people from all over the world, learning about different cultures, and making new friends. I host more than surf, and I started hosting in August 2014.

I love showing travelers around the St Pete area and doing anything fun when I'm free.

I am an Ambassador for Tampa Bay, FL and host monthly events there in my home town
