About Me


To meet, support, and learn from fellow travelers! I love to have new fun experiences with vibrant people.


I came from a small town and really got the travel bug after I moved to Brazil. I have since been to 5 continents and some really amazing places. However, I feel like there is STILL so much to see and experience! I'm very open, social, and fun. I believe in balance in life and consider myself pretty Zen. I feel so alive when I travel and grow personally so much by having that experience.


All we are is a result of what we have thought. -Buddha

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been able to Couch Surf in Sao Paulo, and stayed with my past couch surfers in Lisbon and Seville. I've also surfed in Texas! I usually would stay at hostels when I travel and have met great people that way. However, when I lived in Brazil I really "lived" with the locals in their homes and in their lives. I am very excited about Couchsurfing and showing you around my city! I'm also excited to come and explore yours!


I have Couchsurfed now in Sao Paulo, Lisbon, & Seville. It was an incredible experience because I surfed with people I previously met through couch surfing. Absolutely wonderful time. I have hosted many friends from all over the world.
