About Me

I consider myself to be friendly, outgoing, and quizzical. My sense of humor is usually on my own level and whenever I make a joke I'm usually the only one that laughs. I find a lot of things funny and try my best to keep life light hearted.

"Do what you can, with what you have, and where you're at." -Theodore Roosevelt.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host travelers and try to convince my friends and family that Couchsurfing isn't so scary. I first encountered Couchsurfing while I was abroad in the United Kingdom and it has been a wonderful experience so far.


I like to exercise regularly and am training in Tae Kwon Do. I play percussion, piano, and the marimba. I'm into PC gaming and I really enjoy board games.

Movies: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacked around Europe on a shoestring and got support from the Couchsurfing community.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd be willing to give a few music lessons: both theory and performance. I've been playing piano and percussion for a few years now. I can also show you how to do a very basic beatbox. Also, if you are into computers and or development, I welcome the chance to share and learn more. :)
