About Me

Hi there,

I'm from Baltimore, Maryland. I previously lived in Denver, CO for 5 years. I have been to all 50 states in America and continue to love traveling and meeting new people. I enjoy hiking, camping, bicycling, cooking, socializing, and much more.

My biggest interests to talk about are --- learning about are music, new technology/innovation, pop culture in a very ironic way, stoicism, learning about peoples life goals, podcast recommendations, road trips, startups, volunteering at animal shelters, etc.

Ps I play in a band. We've played a few music festival including one really big one in Denver. We've done a little bit of touring, and have been featured on a few publications as well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I occasionally host travelers, but can almost always meet up. I give the best recommendations ever!

Previously I worked for a hostel for a few years doing community engagement. This gave me the opportunity of meeting many types of people from around the world on a regular basis. It was truly an amazing experience that I'm glad to have had. I work remote in digital marketing which has given me the opportunity to live in Philly for a summer and NYC the summer before that. It also allows for flexibility to meet CSer's and show them around!

Interests

I have a podcast that airs on FM radio where I interview musicians, entrepreneurs, business owners, etc. and do ad reads and concerts/festival reviews as well. Check it out in the link below :)
