Taking advantage of life as I know it by traveling to meet new faces and places and experience by learning and understanding; in which I will lavish in the farthest boundries I may reach.
9-5: an Interior Architect, pushing my way towards a sustainable and green position in architecture/ design-creating the most healthy-responsible-earth conscious spaces for people and the environment.
Other: Most importantly enjoying every stinkin second of life. I frequent concerts, time with friends, art museums, lectures, parks, my bike, coffee, pubs, parties. I haven't traveled afar as much lately, but I plan this year to visit Turkey, Morocco, Greece, family in Prague, and a friend's new home north of London.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I haven't had a surfer yet- unfortunately I was back and forth after I discovered and joined, but I am rooted now and hope to host and/ or show people around Chicago! I know the city well and haven't frozen to death yet.
My best friend and I had the most amazing first experience in San Luis Obispo, CA. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. They had grown up there and took us to spots we would have never found on our own. I would take couchsurfing over a ***** star hotel ANY DAY. I also stayed briefly with a great girl in Seattle when I had an interview. It was mostly business for me, but she was a great tour guide as well
