Very easy going, love having a good time, can't ever seem to dance enough. I've been a member for eight years and have meet all my best friends through this website.
Currently I can't host due to the fact I started my bicycle tour across the US. Mostly camping, couch surfing and couch crashing along the way. Headed from Cincinnati to Seattle to Cali and back across Texas and possibly up the East Coast. I've lived a great adventure of a life in the French Alps designing for Salomon, a year of school in Spain, NYC, Vegas volunteering with the Nevada Conservation Corps doing desert conservation work while camping and couchsurfing for six months. Many great memories.
I love to smile for "no reason" and laugh out loud at fond memories that pass through my head. Often, you can find me dancing in the discos until the break of dawn. I'm a wanna be surfer following in the footsteps of my radical father, who has also been to Burning Man twice. Most of all, I love to travel and meet new people, invite them to BBQ with friends and family, and then offer a coach for the night if they've drank too much :)
