About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To discover everything life has to offer while I figure out my path to graduate college and transition to becoming a "real" person.

ABOUT ME

I like to stay active. I am an avid runner and hope to one day in the distant future (fingers crossed) run a marathon. I thoroughly enjoy cooking. I have a degree in baking and pastry arts, which helps this process along. I love going out to shows/plays or exploring cool cities. I am a sucker for a good film or a concert. I enjoy learning about new things, especially music, books or new cuisine. I will try anything once. I also love to travel.

I like to tell stories.

PHILOSOPHY

There is no time like the present. Seize every opportunity. It is better to regret the things you have done than the things you have not.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Traveling is the perfect way to broaden your horizon and meet people from different backgrounds and learn/see firsthand what exactly went into shaping them into the person they have become. People, town vibes, architecture and cuisine are so fascinating and vary from place to place. I love learning and want to discover more by traveling as much as I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ran a half marathon, randomly was in a pool when a water aerobics class for old ladies began at a bath in Budapest and participated as well, got whisked around the dance floor at a ball in Vienna with absolutely no prior dance experience, saw a church constructed completely out of bones...
