About Me


Meet new friends around the world! Some of the greatest people I Know, I have met on Couchsurfing. I just finished up 5 months traveling Europe, now I'm back in SE Asia, hoping to meet and surf with locals ;)


I've traveled around the world two times so far, and am working on my third trip around the globe. I'll be spending the first 3 months in Europe/Middle East, before going back to SE Asia.

I was born in Germany, raised in Iowa, and grew up in Texas. I played College Volleyball, then moved to Washington DC after graduating. After working a couple years, I realized I wanted to roam free and start traveling the world...and I just never stopped.

I love meeting different kinds of people, and learning from cultures so different than my own. I enjoy eating bizarre foods, tasting new spirits, and sharing laughs with new friends.


Live Beautifully, Agelessly, Intelligently, Creatively, and Happily :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted many couch surfers over the years and met some quality people, who I'm lucky to have crossed paths with. I remain friends with many couchsurfers who stay at my house, and often visit them in their hometowns when I'm out traveling. It's nice to be connected to a global network of wonderful people.


Pay it forward.
