About Me


I want to learn more about the world and take time to travel


I'm pretty introverted but do enjoy meeting new people. I'm curious about the world and believe people are fundamentally the same wherever you go.


We only get so many trips around the sun! It's important to spend time with the people we love and do what we enjoy while we can. A full life is meant to be constantly learning, seeing, meeting new people, challenging ourselves and developing into our best selves.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I attend various CS activities in Chicago.


My first and only actual surfing experience was at the Madison couch crash this summer. I hosted for the first time over Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed myself. I had a ton of fun and can't wait to do it some more.


I like to draw, paint, listen to music, watch movies and play card & board games. I like to go for walks and some light jogging and biking if the weather permits. I love museums and trying new restaurants.
