About Me


Continue to meet people who are die hard globe trotters


I spent almost 3 years living, working, volunteering, and hitchhiking across the southern region of Africa. I often find myself feeling "homesick" for the motherland after returning to the states. Most recently, I spent 4 years abroad working as an English teacher. I'm looking to rediscover the Bay Area as quite a bit has changed in 4 years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a place to offer & can share info on the places I've been.


Have hosted & surfed.

I've also couch surfed throughout Southern Africa, but through other means outside of CouchSurfing. If I had to pick a favorite experience it would be Angola. I absolutely loved the people there!


Hiking, art, local cuisine (I love to stuff my face!), international issues especially Africa, traveling & socializing abroad, of course!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Mana Pools game park in Zimbabwe. You can actually get out of the car & try to get as close to the animals as you dare - but be careful. People die every year from being too careless.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can share tips on getting around southern Africa, especially on the cheap. Interested in learning any skills that will take me abroad again.
