Trying to find clarity and inspiration through travel and self-reflection.
Im currently a full-time graduate student studying architecture and urban design. I am easy going and always looking to have new experiences, especially shared with other people. I enjoy nature and being outside as much as possible, particularly in sunny places near the water and/or amongst the trees :)
I believe living is an active process, and it is through experiences that one gets to see/feel/understand more about how we are all connected. I focus on living in the present, learning from the past and not having too many expectations or worries for the future. I believe there is goodness in everyone and that shared experiences help bring us all closer together.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm currently traveling solo throughout Europe so I am looking to meet other likeminded people. I like using CS because its nice to stay with locals and learn about the community, or to connect with other interesting travelers. I've spent many years hosting people, and I really enjoy the shared experiences that come from the CS community.

Music, Movies, and Books
I can deal with most music at least a little. I always love some Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Brendan James, and other good-vibe tunes for a sunny day. I’m also into a lot of electronic music (house, dnb, and late-night chill stuff). I love books that make me think (especially those based on real life events, and travel stories,) although any book that keeps me from putting it down is a great read.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
WWOOFing at Cosmic Dance Permaculture (located outside of Santa Cruz, CA) and traveling for a year around the U.S. in an RV.
