About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live a moral life under the universal laws that govern all life.

ABOUT ME

Currently 23 years. I have grown up in northern New York State near to the beautiful Adirondacks and spent much time learning and enjoying from these mountains, lakes and rivers.
With continued connection to this way of life, integration of knowing our place as human beings within this world has been a focus and passion to understand myself and share with others.
After working seasonal positions as a naturalist with state parks in northeast United States I decided to meet up with my sister in India to cycle for some time. Being blessed to really see how we are so interconnected through the experiences in rural remote villages where sense of place and connection to one another and the land are the core of life in which these people live, day to day and year to year.

Living a life of simplicity and hard work

PHILOSOPHY

One people, One World
One family, One Home
Universal Love and Compassion

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

While traveling Couchsurfing has been an amazing way to connect to locals of the area and feel instantly a part of the community even if just traveling in that area for a short time.
As of now I do not have a place of my own to host but once I am back 'home' (wherever that may be) I cannot wait to pay forward all the love and kindness I have been shown throughout this journey of life so far.

Interests

Slowing down the pace of everyday life through connection with others and understanding of myself. I have interest in the roots of strong communities and how best to live in harmony with all life. As of lately my interest is based around travel and learning from culture, livelihoods and traditional farming practices throughout parts of Asia.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music and pretty much listen to a whole array of genres.
The culture around bluegrass experienced where I grew up in northern New York through small music festivals and gatherings have brought that type of rugged, stompy, free flowing music close to my heart.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To see everyday as it is and the beauty it offers through the constant cycles of give and take.
May we do our part to act positively within this cycle of give and take and follow under the universal laws that govern all life.

Teach, Learn, Share

As this world becomes more globalized it is essential to see the oneness between all and to appreciate the diversity that brings great recliency.

What I Can Share with Hosts

The time that I have with them through sharing of experiences with one another with the hope of spreading love and compassion.
