About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I really just want to throw myself out into the world and let it change me.

ABOUT ME

I'm an avid day dreamer. But when I'm not doing that I like trying new things, even if I really suck at them. From this wide range of things that I've tried, the things that I've actually managed to stick with are: jogging, snowboarding, swimming, yoga,dancing and keeping my brain fresh with whatever reading material interests me. I'm more of a one on one person rather than a group person. I love learning about people from all different walks of life. On the weirdness scale (I am a firm believer that all humans are "weird" to some degree), I think I manage to not exceed the cute, quirky weird rating.

PHILOSOPHY

I am a firm believer that all things are connected and that all things good and bad have a rippling effect on this planet. I believe that every thing you do no matter how small defines what type of person you are. So I believe in doing as many good things as possible before I die. Yeah, I think that sums it up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
