I was born and raised in a small city in the US. Growing up I never had the opportunity to travel because of financial constraints, so I'm making up for it now...or at least that's what I tell myself. To be completely honest, I'm probably traveling now because I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I believe travel done "properly" has the opportunity to change the way we think. This is because it exposes us to various cultures, all of which have a series of values that they prioritize differently. My goal in my travels is to understand the values of each country I visit. I believe the best way to do this is through Couchsurfing, which allows you to view a culture from a native's perspective.
I consider myself to be fairly healthy (eating healthily and exercising regularly), but I also enjoy experiencing a few naughty indulgences from time to time. Nothing to fear though, as I have enough brain cells left over to engage in intellectual conversation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The most amazing thing I've ever done was probably a 3 month backpacking trip in South America, during which I leapt from a 12 story building, stayed in a haunted hotel, and hiked through the Amazon basin for four days to reach Machu Picchu (which, given how averse I am to nature, was a HUGE accomplishment)!
