About Me

A student of life who loves to roam, always on the look out for authentic connection. Avoider of small talk, I like to dive in deep but also love play and keeping it light hearted. Always looking for something new to learn and fresh perspectives. Life is all about love and connecting, let love rule! There’s so much value in sharing stories and experiences, I love to talk and I love to listen. I am imperfect flawed contradicting honest compassionate human looking for like minded souls to connect with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me, life is all about connection. I want to have meaningful interactions with others, where we can both learn something. I also value experiencing countries through the eyes of its people and enjoy immersing myself in the culture of the places I visit.
