About Me


Newly weds on our quest to find an adventure!


I am a student at a Kansas University earning my BFA in Photography and a minor in Mass Communications. Along with my Fiance Adam, I hope to do some traveling before we embark on a lasting career path. We have two darling puppies that we spend time with outdoors and love to ride motorcycles on the back roads of Kansas. I am a big fan of mythology and expressionistic Slam Poetry here in the US. Currently I work as a graphic designer at a local Sportswear company and Adam is mechanic at a dealership here in town.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have not had any experience couch surfing, but I believe it is going to be a great way to immerse into the culture of our destinations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 16 I did an ambassador trip to New Zealand, Fiji, and Australia; that was my first taste of different cultures and though I was really young then and not quite into photography yet, I would love to do it again and really grasp and carry with me traditions and culture

Teach, Learn, Share

I would really like to do a fine art photo project based on culture and the differences between western views on living life and what other countries consider living. I am interested in the works of Alexander Bloxham that did a large project ON couch surfing. His work is really interesting, I encourage viewers to check him out. I really just want to gain insight and experience culture first hand.
