Join Couchsurfing to see Judy’s full profile. It’s free!
Currently my husband (Jason) and I live in Amman, Jordan, where we are working for a small nonprofit that helps refugees. Trying to learn Arabic while we are here!
I married my high school sweetheart in 2005, right after graduating college. From June 2013 to November 2014 we traveled around the world, finally landing back in Seattle. In June 2017, we moved to Amman, Jordon.
I'm sort of a Catholic, but sort of not. I believe that the best things you can do on this earth are reading, traveling, and meeting new people. Live the life you want to live now.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Back in Seattle I liked to host. I can't really host where I live now, but I love meeting new people and couchsurfing while traveling.
Couchsurfing was one of our favorite parts of traveling. It feels a little like traveling to host people.
Books, writing, snowshoeing, hiking, cooking, etymology, religion (study thereof, not necessarily practicing myself), shoes.
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite books: White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Girl by Blake Nelson, The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.
Movies: The Princess Bride, Love Actually, American Beauty, Roadkill.
Music: Bob Dylan, Rancid, U2, The Clash, Rolling Stones,
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I married my best friend (sounds sappy, sure, but it's true).
Teach, Learn, Share
I like all kinds of people! We enjoy meeting locals and really seeing a glimpse into other people's lives when we travel.
