About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Current mission is to explore, learn, seek, find, assist, help, grow, and develop myself as a person and artist while making people smile and laugh in the process. I have a tendency to really want care for people, and want them to care for themselves, when I love, I love hard.

ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm a performing artist that lives in Ohio and I am 22 yrs old. I'm very strong willed, confident, some would call me "princess", I guess because how I deal with situations, I try to just dust it off my shoulders while keeping my poise. I have a pretty optimistic outlook towards life. I love people but don't really tolerate people that are mean or rude just for the sake of being cruel, not OK, though I have my moments, I am generally a good guy. I am friendly and extremely open-minded, I live openly as a Homosexual male, but I love having all types of friends. And in terms of a couch-surfing situation, I'd prefer my host be gay friendly. :)

I attended a performing arts High school in Columbus,Ohio and graduated 2010. I sang and also did performing arts(Dance which is currently what I am pursuing). I went to Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Fl for 2 years directly after I graduated in 2010. I wasn't exactly unhappy at the University but it initially wasn't the place for me. So I've been home in Ohio out of school for like a 2yrs now. I've worked through a temp agency and all over the place just making money and trying to enjoy each day while brushing off the challenges that arise. I am now ready to make the next step in my life! California hopefully being my next permanent step. I want to explore everything and learn as much as I can remember in my life span!

I consider myself an artist, yet I much rather be seen as a sweet good person that enjoys being around people, being a person with "talent", it becomes a necessity to strive for excellence and those around you truly expect it as well, that can be pretty difficult to deal with at times, but comes with the territory I suppose. It's my life, I love performance so I know what I'm getting myself into. :)

I have been called many names, but the names I actually associate myself with are ; optimist, an artist, sensitive, sweet, considerate, eccentric, friendly, sometimes stubborn, playful, silly, forward, sometimes blunt, open, honest, sincere, natural, authentic, pretty haha, adaptable, kooky, cray, funny, upbeat and my favorite, a gentle soul! My grandmother says that I am "Free" quite often, and I strive to remain as free as I can be.

Any specific questions just ask me, I am an open book! Nothing is ever too weird haha

Oh, and any chance I have to get naked, I jump on that, so liberating, totally my thing! lol

PHILOSOPHY

Keep it cute, and keep it professional. Always!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm exploring, meeting as many surfers as I possibly can while visiting places I've never been, until the day I have my own place to actually be able to host some surfers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It has been a blast! I just cannot express how exciting and adventurous it makes me feel, I'm a nomad at heart, so jumping around from place to place isn't really that odd to me, many people I am close with cannot really fathom how I can go and stay with COMPLETE strangers, but one doesn't understand until you're involved in this community and it's been an amazing experience, I cannot wait to travel out of the US.

Interests

Dance, art, music, theater, Netflix, Social events, swimming, working out, gym, meeting new people, travel, exploring, adventures, food, wine, health and fitness and more!

Music, Movies & Books

Go green live Rich - David Bach All music, some current rap, not often. I love metal, goth punk, scream-O bands(some), rock, Alternative, Film scores, classical, some country, love old school R&B. Classics, Beyonce, Bjork, The Beatles, Kate Havenevik, Elli Goulding, Rihanna, Tim Burtons composer(Danny Elfman)

Moves -Queen of the Damned -Interview with a vampire -AeonFlux -Any vampire or witch movie. -The Witches -The Witched of East-wick And so many more... Any parody flick!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've danced all around the Columbus, Ohio area, I've traveled with BalletMet to Buffalo New York to perform in the "Nutcracker". I've danced in the "First Coast Nutcracker" in Jacksonville, Florida. I've met 2-3 celebrates in my life.

I really have to say each day I try to do one small gesture of pure kindness and consideration and there is nothing that makes me feel such love then doing something and expecting NOTHING in return, it's magical, I cannot wait to be able to do that on a larger scale.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am want to exchange my good energy and love to those that need it! I can teach you about dance, I can teach you new lingo, I can give you lessons in "The Art of Sass" I've mastered it. But on a serious note, I really have a lot to offer people, my views aren't traditional, and I try to speak from a place of truth rather then BS someone. I love people, and I wish to share good energy, good times, come to me with an open heart, honest mind and I will receive you with the same.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can share my mind, my heart, my cooking(Maybe if you dare), my humor, my life, my joy, my wisdom(If it's relative) and anything else you'd like.
