About Me

Hello! Big fan of CS and the community here. I love pretty much anything outdoors and consider myself a very active person - whether that be backpacking, climbing, cycling, playing basketball, volleyball, or frisbee or just going for a run. Personality wise, I love meeting new people and would consider myself an extroverted introvert. I love talking to people and hearing what I can learn from then and what they have to share - we're social animals and I consider human connection to be a pretty awesome thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet locals. I want a more authentic travel experiences where I actually get to meet the people of the places I'm travelling to. I'm a big fan in general of the exchange of culture, ideas, interests, etc. Firm believer that we have so much to learn from each other - I'm happy to just sit there, listen and absorb. In a nutshell, I'm here to expand my worldview by meeting others interested in the same thing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Into the Wild, Ishmael, Born to Run

Movies: Not a huge movies guy but I especially like classics like 12 Angry Men

Music: Music is such a huge influence in my life. I'll listen to and appreciate any genre but my favorite fall under the alternative umbrella: folk rock, indie folk, indie pop, etc. Some of my more well known favorite bands include The Avett Brothers, The Head and the Heart, and the Lumineers.

Teach, Learn, Share

Happy to share anything I can from my culture and my experiences - particularity interested in hearing more about the places that I'm coming in contact with and there culture and way of life and what drive the individuals I meet.
