About Me

Hello! I hail from Cincinnati, Ohio but now live Durham, North Carolina.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's cheesy but true: you only live once. I want to use couch surfing as a way to explore the world, meet new people, learn about different cultures and places, and discover myself in an affordable manner!


I enjoy outdoor activities and exploration. For instance, I frequently hike, camp, bike, and trail run to explore new places (whether in the city or countryside). I'm an avid rugby player and horseback rider. When I have enough time and money, I enjoy world- and cross-country travel. When I don't, I enjoy taking day/weekend "staycations" and backpacking trips around my home turf.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I played on a premiere women's rugby team in Santiago, Chile for a year (Stade Francais Rugby Feminino). It was an incredible experience.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A place to sleep and feel safe, advice on what to do and see around town. I would only be interested in hosting 1-3 kind, respectful people for 1-2 days at a time.
