About Me

I love to travel, hike, climb rock and ice, mountain bike, trail run, kayak, practice yoga, create things, garden organically, prepare fresh healthy foods, try new things, learn, etc. I'm vegetarian/mostly vegan, I love animals and am passionate about protecting them as well as our natural environment. I love music (classic rock, jam bands, bluegrass, etc) and going to live shows, I'm big into lifestyle changes that help reduce our environmental footprint, and thus I'd consider myself a hippie. I'm a kind-hearted, honest person who wishes to see happiness and peace in the world amongst all living beings :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To travel, learn, work, meet new people, and experience life on a budget. I have traveled to the west (US) several times by car, and this time I'm going by train. There seem to be more like-minded people in the west and I'm hoping to find them so I can have friends on the road.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn beneficial things that relates to my interests and needs going through this life. I'm interested in learning about natural homes and having the chance to help build one.

I strive to teach and share what I've learned in my personal journey thus far. I also love to share with others anything I can vontrobute, especially a nice healthy meal :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Fun, kindness, cleanliness, vegetarian/vegan food prep, etc etc. Depends who you are and what you're receptive to, but in general, I like to help others :) I'd be willing to help you with some of your daily tasks if needed.
