About Me


So see as much of the world as possible before I join what some people like to call the 'real world.' I've been abroad 5 years and its great!


I've had the travel bug since I was 11 and I made my first trip overseas without my parents...since then I've been more or less unstoppable. I love living in new places, seeing new things and exploring. I think that everyday should be an adventure and I try to live by that...


Be strong in your convictions and have the courage to act on them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I have the ability, I love hosting people as well as traveling and being hosted other places. I've met some of the most incredible people through CS and I can't wait to start traveling again :-)


Music is a driving force in my life. I can't live without it, although after years of music lessons I still don't read music. Photography, cooking, running, enjoying life....hiking, rock climbing...

Music, Movies, and Books

My current favorite book is "Smile When Your Lying" but there are so many to choose from. The Alchemist, Water For Elephants, A Lesson Before Dying, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay...just to name a few. When it comes to music its hard to say, mostly recently played would be, Beirut, Bon Iver, Frou Frou, KT Tunstall, Lauryn Hill, and Nizlopi.

Teach, Learn, Share

Not sure I'm much of a teacher, but I've been known to teach people how to cook, bake incredible cookies and knit. I would love to learn to read music, or more languages or well....hundreds of other things.
