About Me

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."


I would describe myself as an adventurous and curious person. I like to call myself well traveled, even though I know I've only barely scratched the surface.

I've been living in Seattle, WA ever since I decided to come here on a whim- which is about 3 years ago now. I grew up in southern California, Arizona, and went to university in Idaho. I was always fascinated by Seattle as a kid and knew I wanted to live here. So here I am!

I Studied abroad twice in college and gained most of my international experience by doing so. Meeting so many awesome people inspired me to be part of a community like CS.

For the first time ever, I'm finally able to host people!


Life is too short to wait around for something to happen. If this is my only shot at this then I want to make the most of it and get as much out of living as I possibly can. My goal is to have friends on every continent in as many countries as possible. I want to feel more connected with the world in every way I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in cultural exchanges with people from all over the world.


The easiest way to put it is that I am interested in experiencing things I haven't done before. I'm always looking for something new to be interested in.
