About Me


Travel, learn, and have fun!


I am a kind, open minded, light hearted person. I enjoy having good conversations, traveling on the down low, and laughing. I like to live in the moment and see the glass half full!


I enjoy living peacefully, following the golden rule (treat others as I'd like to be treated), and listening to what others have to share.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the couchsurfing community and am an active member in the South Florida couchsurfing meetup. Currently I am looking to surf in SE Asia!


I couchsurfed across Colorado for about a month and it was awesome! I met so many cool new people with similar interests, and really got to feel like a local wherever I went. I also love using meetup.com!


I really enjoy traveling - as I'm sure most couch surfers do.. When I'm not traveling I am writing, producing a podcast, and performing standup comedy. I also enjoy being active and playing any type of sport!

If there is anything I can help with during my stays I am more than happy to do so.

Standup - I really enjoy public speaking and performing. Going up on stage is always an adrenaline rush!

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak English fluently and have just studied business at a university. I enjoy building websites, online businesses, and learning about online and offline marketing.

I would be happy to share all of my knowledge and would enjoy helping out in any way during my stay.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My compassion and understanding. I love meeting new people and listening to new ideas. I enjoy living life to its fullest and have been actively studying self-improvement and mindfulness which I'd love to share!

I am usually good for a few laughs, and always try to leave things cleaner than when I arrive. I am a resourceful person who enjoys contributing - let me know how I can be of service!
