About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel up the east coast of Australia searching for work.

ABOUT ME

I like to think of myself as a pretty positive person.
My personal philosophy is: Things can only be as good or bad as you make them. So why not have a good time?

I studied marketing & international business with a minor in German at the University Minnesota.
During that time I studied abroad in Graz, Austria 2011, worked an internship in Ulm, Germany 2012 and just finished working for a year in a half in Berlin 2014. Now I am doing a bit of traveling around Australia before I find a spot to settle down here for a while and work!

My goal is to continue traveling around the world and am currently teaching myself Spanish with the help of Duolingo. (Excellent website I HIGHLY recommend it)

Another interesting thing about me is I a beginner lever in Pig Latin but it wasn't an option on the language list.

PHILOSOPHY

I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question.
-Harun Yahya

Those who are willing to fail miserable will achieve greatly.
-Robert F. Kennedy

Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
-Dr. Seuss

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Whenever people ask me about traveling I somehow always drive the conversation towards Couchsurfing. Whether it's sleeping on someone's couch or just meeting up for coffee, I'm on here because I can't imagine traveling without it.

....I talk about this website so much, I sometimes wonder myself if I work for Couchsurfing because undoubtedly sound like I am trying to sell it.

Interests

I love acroyoga, ultimate frisbee, scuba and would love to learn Spanish and how to play guitar. At this point in my life those are my focuses.

Other things I'm interested are swimming, volley ball, snowboarding and I'm all about poker. If you get me started talking about poker, we'll both have problems trying to get me to stop....

Music, Movies & Books

Music: I'm into the same indie stuff that probably every other unique hipster is into. Additionally, I love some soul, jazz and oldies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Something amazing about me is that I went Skydiving last year for the first time ever! It was such a thrilling experience that I will undoubtably do again. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

The best advice I've ever learned is:

Don't make promises when you're happy, don't respond when you're angry and don't make decisions when you're sad.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Chuck Norris jokes.
