About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Getting active in the Couch Surfing community!

ABOUT ME

I am getting more involved in the CouchSurfing community. I'm based in Tampa, Florida USA and I have adjusted my career to gain the freedom to travel more months out of the year. I find it difficult to just work a regular corporate job. Being somewhere across the globe feels more real to me than life in the United States. I volunteer with local mentorship organizations whenever I have free time. I eat a plant-based diet and love to exercise and stay fit. I love to learn so I spend a lot time educating myself about the way the world really works.

PHILOSOPHY

“Live, love, learn”
