About Me


To travel and experience as many countries as possible ! I want to see the world !


I got a bachelor's degree at the University of Utah in Film and Media Arts, I studied video game design. I've done some traveling abroad in the past and enjoyed experiencing new lifestyles/cultures and seeing the history in each new place.

Places I've been so far: London, Italy (Venice, Florence, Rome, Tuscany region), Japan (Kansai region : Osaka, Kyoto, Nara).

Places I would like to travel to: Japan (again, Tokyo, Hokkaido, Okinawa, and more), Thailand, Korea, Cambodia, China, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia (Dubai), parts of southern Africa, France, Sweden, Switzerland, and more :P

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to couchsurfing, but I would love to provide a great experience for my hosts and make new friends and make fun memories for us both. I am kind, polite, and willing to participate/help out with my hosts as much as possible.


None yet, but greatly looking forward to it.


I love to travel, I spent my life growing up traveling around the United States because of my parents job required it often. Now I want to see as much of the world as possible. I also like movies and video games, though I'm trying to wean myself off of them for better things :)
Hiking, horseback riding, exploring, skiing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, photography.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to live on a ranch in Hawaii for 8 months and learned how to ride horse, drive cattle, and break in and train new horses. Also during this time I went on several beautiful hikes around the island, my favorite being a several mile hike through the woods in Waipio that led to a pool beneath a 1000 foot waterfall. Breathtaking view.

Teach, Learn, Share

Computer arts such as 3D modeling and animation.
I'd like to learn many languages and become fluent so that I can experience the lifestyles and cultures from all over the world.
