About Me


I like bikes, berries and beards. Last summer I biked coast to coast across the United States from Maine to Oregon and it was dope as fuck.

I've worked all sorts of different jobs ranging from donut making, growing mushrooms in a lab (of the non-magical variety), performing music (piano and trombone, but not at the same time), handing out food samples, leading bike tours and digging around in the dirt.

Like every other couchsurfer out there, I obviously love traveling and meeting new people. The world has so much to offer and one lifetime is not enough for everything I want to see and do. I studied abroad in Denmark during my undergraduate, and through travels with friends, family or solo, I have visited 26 countries (not enough!!)

Last winter I spent 2 and a half months traveling around Australia and New Zealand volunteering on farms, visiting friends, and bein' a tourist. I absolutely fell in love with New Zealand. I am about to start a master's in Vermont, but my hope is to return to New Zealand for at least a year or two after graduating.

I'm a very chill and laid back person. I like to go with the flow and see where the world takes me. I'm a firm believer in the philosophy that you get from the world what you put into it, so have a blast and be a decent human being!

Follow your bliss.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only had positive experiences with couchsurfing. I've met wonderful, generous people with funny stories and interesting tips about their hometowns. I think it's a fantastic way to travel, meet new people, and learn about new areas.
