About Me


See the world, make friends and become a great journalist.


I genuinely enjoy conversations with just about everyone I meet. Every person has a story and I like to listen. I love to travel whenever possible, and doing so just makes me want to travel more! I love being outdoors, preferably in the sun and near an ocean.


Believe. The first thing you must to do achieve anything worthwhile.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I look for new groups, search for interesting hosts and look forward to hosting others when I get settled down back in the U.S.


I have CouchSurfed twice in Sweden, and both times have been very enjoyable!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love romantic comedies: Love Actually, Knotting Hill, How to Lose a Guy in 10 days, etc. I also love Wedding Crashers, the Hangover and the Notebook...of course.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Touring Machu Picchu in Peru with my family was spectacular! Last summer I spent three weeks working and sailing a boat in the Caribbean. I will never forget that experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to meet people that live day-to-day and go with the flow. Having or searching for a purpose in life leads to a good conversation :)
