About Me


to be a seeker, a passionate explorer, chose the unmarked bottle armed with nothing but faith and a belief in astonishment


Hello fellow travelers! I currently live and work in the mountains of western North Carolina, at a little art school known as Penland School of Crafts. I'm involved in the art scene around the local community and in Asheville, love going to breweries, float trips and seeing live music. Feel free to send me a message if you're coming into town; if I can't host you, I'd love to meet up for drinks or show you around!


Being rich never interested him all that much. As long as he had money for supplies and ammunition as he roamed, he was happy.
-William Johnstone

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf people's couches and tell them funny stories about living in Appalachia.

I also am a (new!) host.


The people I've met through CS have proved to be some of the most incredible people I've ever met. Not only have I had great experiences surfing, but I've also participated in various super fun CS organized events.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The summer I was 19, I took a bus (58 hour drive, yah) from Tennessee to Oregon alone and traveled the west coast awhile, met as many people as possible, and had some great times. It was completely exhilarating and challenging to be traveling alone for three weeks, but I had the most amazing time and experiences.
