About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Europe on my mind!

ABOUT ME

If you need to contact me. you can message me anytime for information or help. I promise I will get back to you within a day or two and try to help out however possible! 6617488013
I am a nice 32 year old who feels like a 20 year old. You can come stay with me or I can visit you. I have been all over America and Asia and parts of Europe and hope to see the rest of the world some day.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in the universal law of Karma. As Christ said " You reap what you sow". I have chosen to reap love, compassion and hospitality to all those- and especially my guests on this site! Do what is kind, do what is right and it will likely happen back to you. Even if it doesnt, you still have the benefit of knowing you did the right thing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to meet more people. I love to hear new stories of others experiences and to share in traveling together. I will admit that it is a bit of an addiction of mine. I have literally met thousands of people from almost every single country on the planet. I love hearing new stories and learning from others. Sharing your stories and ideas is one of the best ways to promote peace and understanding in this world. Traveling opens up a whole new horizon for you!

I joined in 2008, but did not start to immerse myself until 2010. Today (July 11th) I hosted my first event. Nearly 20 people were there. It was a lot of fun with good food and games and fun. I have since done about another 10 events and helped out many more. Ive hosted about 200 people (many people did not leave references and some had multiple people- I once hosted 8 people at the same time!).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

At this point, I have met countless hundreds of people through this site. I have had an amazing time! Thank you so much! If you check with my references they will tell you that I am a very kind, generous and accommodating host! I have also experienced some AMAZING hospitality!!!!! Thank you everyone!!!!

I also love the idea of turning others on to CS. I have signed up 6 personal friends, and I think that it is beautiful to tell others and also host events so that they can participate. More people doing that will spread this site to the moon and back!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The North Korean acrobats. I was a little tipsy off honey beer and it really added to the performance. I truly have never seen anything as amazing and mind blowing as that...
Also, paid to have an orphanage renovated in Cambodia, that was fulfilling.

Teach, Learn, Share

Although I have went through school and studied many subjects, I have found the the wealth of my knowledge has come from meeting others and experiencing the world. I have learned so much from talking to others and just by being outside in the world. This has been invaluable for me. I enjoy sharing stories and exchanging information and ideas. I think a conversation should be a two way street and I am frequently writings quotes from other people during conversations!

What I Can Share With Hosts

I will definitely cook you a meal if you host me. I am also up to helping with chores, in fact I prefer it (I have a bit of a cleaning fetish). I have many amazing, funny, sad, outrageous stories from my travels abroad. I think you will not be disappointed to host me!
