About Me

Whenever possible, I travel! Try to spend time in less-known places.

Learning about different cultures is my passion, and talking with people is the best way to do this. Love to discuss.

I enjoy meeting POSITIVE people.

Born and raised in Louisiana, USA; Proud to be "Cajun."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Lucky to have met many great people through Couchsurfing, both in my home city and travelling.
