About Me

Genuine, honest, loving, driven. Musician, artist, computer nerd, voracious reader, maker of useful things. I value deep, open emotional connections with the people in my life. Live music is my happy place 🎶


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've entered a phase in my life where spontaneous travel is becoming much more accessible, so couchsurfing is a great way to satisfy my love of meeting new people, learning new things, hearing new perspectives, and seeing new places with eyes informed by local experience.


One of my favorite hobbies is kind of a meta hobby - I love learning new things! As a result, I've accumulated quite a long list of hobbies. Currently my focus is playing music, but I still spend quite a bit of time making things with my hands out of wood, cloth, metal, yarn, or leather.
