About Me

I just graduated college with a degree in geophysics, and before I get settled into graduate school/real job, I'm taking time off to explore the world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm taking a year off between finishing my undergraduate degree and continuing onto graduate school, and I'd like to meet new people and experience new things.


I love the outdoors, animals, and exploring new places. I'm a geologist, so I am also very interested in rocks.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I enjoy most music, but favorites are indie folk bands

Movies: Everything expect horror!

Books: I'll read almost anything. Although I really couldn't get into Ernest Hemingway.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent a month on a research vessel in the Scotia Sea, Antarctica, and got to spend some time on the island of South Georgia up close with penguins and fur seals. If you're interested in geology things, I can elaborate on the work we were doing!
