About Me


Learn more about myself and the world around me- eternal student.


I grew up in the southern Rockies of the US, and love all things mountains. For my career-I want to research mountain hydrology (water science), and for enjoyment I love to backpack, mountain bike, road bike, snowboard, and anything that gets me outside.

I try to live my life with continuous challenge and passion-whether its the challenge of staying in one place and growing roots and community, or being continuously on the go and pushing my comfort zone. I just switched to the second realm on this 5 month journey through south america.


Live simply.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As of now, I am a traveller and want to meet people on the road through couch surfing to get to know places better. When I get back to the states, I hope to host couch surfers and share whatever I have to offer.


I have friends who have hosted, and enjoyed going out with travellers on the town.


Outdoors, triathlons, cooking, local food, yoga teaching, good people.
