About Me

Ohio born, travel savvy photographer. At the moment I'm exploring the Pacific NW because I feel a calling to the area. 34 states, 27 countries...
Wanderlust 2012, 6 month world trip: http://the-wanderlustproject.tumblr.com

Saturating life with experiences, captivating people and winding roads. My home is in my heart. Creating unique memories with other people along the way. I feel alive. When I'm alone, I have so many deep experiences to reflect on.

It's so clear to me how important it is to be around those you trust, that can grow with you and inspire you continuously as they come and go.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is an awesome network/community wherever you go. I'd be blind to some hidden gems without it.


Photography, live music, climbing, hiking, laying in the sun, exploring a new place, cooking, drawing, surfing & dancing.
