About Me

I consider myself to be a citizen of the world, invested in living a minimalist lifestyle and in environmental sustainability. I love to interact with and learn from others who have similar interests, and making friends from all over the world! I'm passionate about nature conservation, habitat restoration, and wild land philanthropy, and strive to dedicate myself to these pursuits.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to connect with like-minded people and work together to change the world! We are more powerful when we come together and share ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and experiences. There is so much we don’t know about the world, and Couchsurfing has been a fantastic way for me to learn from the experiences of others: so far, I've learned about roller skating, storm chasing, tattoos, dumpster diving, piercing, among others. I’ve also had my fortune read which was a lot of fun!

Interests

I am interested in minimalism, being surrounded by nature, gardening, and hiking state parks.
I am passionate about photography and music, and enjoy playing the piano. I love to travel and learn about history, and use these experiences to further my knowledge of linguistic and cultural anthropology. I love to cook, and love exploring different flavors from around the world. I am also invested and enjoy living an active lifestyle, and love hiking, martial arts, and yoga.

Music, Movies, and Books

No joke - I have watched fewer than 10 movies in my life. I’ve been told I’ve got quite a lot of catching up to do! I enjoy reading very much, and am interested in exploring psychology and self-improvement books and strategies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It is really difficult for me to qualify one thing as amazing, when so much of my life has been so. But, if I had to relate just one amazing thing I’ve done, it would be encountering one of Earth's largest living things.

Teach, Learn, Share

Since we all come from different environments and experience different events and have unique perceptions of the world, there is always an opportunity to learn from anyone and everyone. Self-exploration is a lifelong process, and the value of wisdom should never be ignored. The only "dumb question" is the one not asked; thereby leaving us stagnant and unchanged.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my conversation, perspective, life experiences, play the piano, cook Middle Eastern food, and work in the garden and in nature. I am also an excellent listener, and enjoy hearing from others.
