About Me

Hi, I'm Jared Godar. (I used to get a TON of requests in Nashville and have my name here to see who read my profile before requesting a place to stay.)

Back in Texas after over a decade in Nashville.

I am a freelance medical writer and editor, so I work from home and my schedule is pretty flexible. When I'm not doing that, I also write for a music publication (Fighting the Nashville Blues).

I was a non-commissioned officer in the Army for six years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed around the Southeast US for Rugby trips and have hosted folks from all over the world. I've also surfed in Central America, Australia, and Sweden.


I've met nothing but wonderful people through this site.


I enjoy live music, cooking, brewing beer, rugby, dancing, travel, SCUBA, poker, camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing, reading, photography, playing saxophone, trying to lean the guitar (and remember the piano), and trying new things.
