About Me


make everyday an adventure


I'm a HS teacher with a passion for literature, traveling, good food, and great people. Nothing beats having a group of people together to discuss... anything really. The exchange of thoughts and ideas is simply wonderful, and I believe it's what makes the world go round. Being able to respectfully disagree is even more beautiful if you ask me.


This world was not created for me to stay in the confines of my home in one place. But rather, to be an active explorer; to get lost only to find myself in a wondrous spectacular place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't participated too much, which is something i'm hoping to change. But I'm making my way through Europe rather soon, thus becoming an active participant in the CS movement


I joined CS because of my semester in Argentina but ended up stumbling upon some really amazing locals about my first week or so there and just got lost in living in the moment. Thus, never got a chance to really use CS.
