About Me


Graduated from Colorado State University (Fort Collins), where I embarked on a love affair with beer. Studied International Relations with minors in History and Political Science. Currently work in Software with a streaming company. Have lived in Colorado for over a decade now, and I love it. If you have anything specific, do ask me!


We don't have the time we think we do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was introduced by a friend who let me use his account to find accommodations in Morocco and the Spanish Enclaves. The people were awesome and it gave me a wider perspective on the places I visited.

Now, I can actually pay it back for that sweet, sweet karma. So I host travelers and get to hear their stories.
