About Me

I love to cook, listen to music, and play just about any board game there is. I used couchsurfing while I studied abroad and stayed with wonderful hosts, so I figured it was only fair to return the favor and open up my home to others!

I live with my partner Zach and our two cats in the Smoketown neighborhood of Louisville, KY.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think Couchsurfing adds so much to a trip - I have been so many amazing places due to my hosts’ suggestions. I love seeing cities through a local’s eyes & am always excited when I can share my favorite spots with travelers.

I also just enjoy hosting people & having a fuller house!
