About Me


pet all of the cats


I'm a writer and an artist, and I want to see all I can of this beautiful world God has created!

I love to meet the locals when I travel; they always know the best spots to visit and the coolest restaurants to check out. I like a little guidance but I am a planner. Nothing gives me that feeling of excitement like seeing a new place, rich with its own history.


I'd like to thank Henry David Thoreau for this little gem that I try to live by: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the live you've imagined."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, and hopefully one day hosting.


I have only used airbnb.com thus far, so I'm looking forward to getting involved in the Couch Surfing community!


I have a serious obsession with 16th century England. Bread is my favorite food group. I could play soccer all day and watch basketball all night. Top three favorite books: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Giver. Top three favorite shows: Friends, The Office, Arrested Development. Top three favorite musical groups: Impossible…I am a lover of nearly all types of music, but if I had to choose (at the moment), The Bird & the Bee, The Lumineers, and Beruit.

Music, Movies, and Books

The Wizard of Oz, Grease, A Beautiful Mind, Harry Potter, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Giver, The Book Thief, Tuesdays with Morrie

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I visited the Tower of London and stood in the spot where Anne Bolyen (Henry VIII's second wife and the main reason for the creation of the Church of England) was beheaded. Might sound creepy to some, but it was AWESOME.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to do art--drawing, painting and crafting. I could spend a big part of my day writing, and I like to play soccer, basketball and tennis.
