About Me

Grew up in New Orleans and currently living the dream in the great city of Austin, Texas! I like my job, but my heart lies in exploring the world. I love to meet new people, take in different cultures, and share the experience with others.

Most importantly, I think that everywhere we go is an opportunity to learn about oneself and to better oneself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't hosted or couchsurfed yet, but am looking forward to the experience.


None so far. I've been putting off couchsurfing ever since I signed up, but now I'm finally ready to do this!


Meeting new people. Anything outdoors (hiking, running, mountain biking, rockclimbing, kayaking). Learning about history and admiring architecture. Photography. I also love to try new things especially food. Living in New Orleans and Austin has corrupted me with some of the best food on Earth!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - All types except for country.

Movies - Don't watch too many movies, but The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are two of my favorite TV shows.

Books - I've been reading a lot of non-fiction books lately. I also love to read Ideas and Discoveries and Outside Magazine. You learn something new with each flip of the page!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bungy Jumping. It feels as if you're flying!

Heli-Hiking Franz Josef Glacier on South Island, New Zealand.

Camping and stargazing in the deserts of Southern Utah.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to tell travelers of the "hidden gems" in my country: places away from the touristy spots, but equal in beauty.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, China, Croatia, Mexico, New Zealand, Serbia

Countries I’ve Lived In
