About Me

Hi, I'm Erin! I teach poetry at the University of South Florida. I also like to play guitar and sing. I like painting, although my skills stop around the Bob Ross video-watching level. I love looking at public art, hiking at national parks, seeing new cities and riding unique roller coasters. I have been very blessed by this community and I'm happy to be a part.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet, to greet, to befriend.

There is no better way to experience a new city than from the eyes of people who live there. So many cities are stigmatized (which can be positive or negative), but through the eyes of a city's residents, you can see beyond what people say and learn why people call it home.
