About Me


Create a new life in Seattle


I'm a recent college grad looking to travel and enjoy life. I love the outdoors especially hiking, swimming, and rock climbing. I'm going to be traveling around Spain, France and England for the next three months and am hoping to meet many new friends and experience places and cultures that I never have before. I would consider myself very outgoing and happy to talk to most anyone.


Adventure and enjoy life as much as possible! Don't let the small things stop you from opening yourself to the big experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't have a couch to host people right now but I'm travelling and hoping to meet some fun, new people along the way. I can't wait to see what the world has in store.


I have couchsurfed with several people in Washington and Oregon and am looking to do more as I travel across Europe this fall.


Growing up in Montana has made me truly appreciate the beauty of nature. I love hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, swimming and any other way to spend time outside. I'm also a total foodie and am interested in farming in the future.
