About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get paid for traveling

ABOUT ME

Currently: Catching my dreams.

Living in Denver, Co with my AMAZing Australian Boyfriend.

Current Hobbies: Making recycled furniture (pallet coffee table, bedframe, ect., gardening in old drawers), learning how to cook healthy food.

I Served two terms of service with the AmeriCorps St. Louis Emergency Response team. (www.americorps-stl.org) Fighting wildfires, helping out in disaster areas, and helping to conserve our natural resources. Truly I'm trying to devote the next couple years of my life to traveling around the world (cheaply by staying on the couches of the beautiful people on this website). Traveling seemed like a better idea than trying to find a job as a newly graduated undergraduate in this economic recession. Why not just spend all my savings on meeting new people and learning about other cultures (having a lot of fun). I am very easy going and love the outdoors. I really do believe that the best things in life are free. I love crasins, Galaxy chocolate, and red wine by the bottle.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My friend Amy and I have couch surfed our way down the coast of California and back home to St. Louis. Honestly probably the best way to travel!!! Several St. Louis CS events.

WORKING ON MY CIRCUS TRICK. Everyone in Cali seems to have a circus trick that they perform at the beach.
HIKING.
WORKING WITH CHILDREN. I have worked at a summer camp for children with special needs for five years and taught English in Peruvian Orphanage.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies.. anything Adam Sandler (Billy Madison is my favorite stupid humor film). I'm sad to say it and one of my best friends that is a film student would probably kill me but i really enjoy stupid sappy chick flicks. When Harry met Sally.. Classic.

Tim Burton films- the Nightmare Before Christmas and Big Fish!! Goodwill Hunting, Patch Adams.. o I really like Robin Williams too. Favorite Disney movie is probably a tie between Aladin and A Goofy Movie.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have seen Machu Picchu..from the top of Huayna Picchu 2,720 metres (8,920 ft).. even though I almost had an asthma attack half way up.

I stood in the middle of a 14 mile scar in the earth that the Joplin Tornado made and could not see a single standing structure.

I have seen the fireworks over the Sydney Harbor Bridge on New Years Eve.
