About Me

CURRENT MISSION:
I am looking to meet new people from all around the world and acquire new experiences.

ABOUT ME:
I am an avid traveler - I usually go it alone as I like to set my own itineraries and I hate to slow people down with my photography and writing. I have many hats and love to acquire new ones - you never know when you may need to fall back on one!! Always be prepared!!!

PHILOSOPHY:
Live each day like it's your last!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING:
I usually like to meet for drinks and dinner but I have also hosted and surfed. I also try to go to meetings here in New York City.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE:
I have met people in Paris and Chicago for dinner and a day out. I have also surfed in New York City before moving there as well as all over Texas just for fun. Upon arriving in NYC in 2011, a bunch of Couchsurfers were gracious enough to help me move in. Since then, I have been to numerous Couchsurfing meetings and meetups.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have been to 34 cities and towns in Europe, several many times (ie. Paris 6 times). I have also been all over the United States and parts of Canada and Mexico. My passion is travel. My second passions are photographing and writing about the places I visit.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have studied 4 other languages besides English but if you don't use it, you lose it. I get around fine all over Europe but I'd like to meet people with other language skills who I can practice with. As far as teaching, I am an endless source of useless knowledge!! LOL

What I Can Share With Hosts

Endless knowledge on various subjects as well as my travel experiences. While I tend to keep to myself (I'm a bit shy), I do come out of my shell for the right person.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

United States
