About Me


create, innovate, discombobulate, reinstate my childhood mindset of creativity and exploration.


grew up in a big family and have always loved having lots of people around so this type of travel and housing is right up my alley. i try and let people make their own decisions about me after they have met me but for the sake of information i am really easy going and usually quite open and up front.


don't really have any philosophies because opinions and feelings about ones self can be too defining. live like a tree and bend but also know how to be content with the stillness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i would like to help others enjoy safe and inexpensive travel in the future. Love to show people around and I am excited to get back and offer the same surfing benefits that I will receive.


i let a couple of young Russian kids crash in my living room for 4 months. Initially they were supposed to stay for a week or two but things went differently and I ended up making two great new friends that still reside in the US.


i love, love, love to climb trees!
