About Me

I lived in Japan for 2.5 years and now I'm teaching in Korea. I love traveling and meeting new people! I love hearing people's life stories and hearing about people's different perspectives on things and life. When traveling, I do like touristy things but I also like the get the full experience from a country; eat local food, meet new people, go off the beaten path.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on this site because I am hoping to travel around the world throughout my life and I would love to meet some great new people along the way.


I love traveling (duh), trying new things, meeting new people, reading, writing, eating delicious food, going out, kickboxing, hiking, and experiencing new cultures
