About Me


Being a little better every day / Recording my first album


I live to experience new things. I love meeting new people, eating new food and going to new places. I can happily spend days just wondering around town meeting locals and giving anything a try.


There are profound moments in our lives. Where the whole world falls away, and its just you and whoever you are connected to at that time taking up the entire universe. Some choose to take these instances as gifts of chance, some people choose to pursue that type of connection. To be open to its creation. To make it happen. That choice is the dividing line. What’s your choice?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting, greeting and doing my best.


Couchsurfing has been a real blessing. It has opened so many doors for me and helped me to keep my heart open as well. I've been lucky enough to surf with countless amazing people. So much more than the hundreds of nights spent safe when away from home it has been the many new homes I've found in the hearts of so many wonderful new friends that has been the real gift. With years of travel under my belt, it has become my absolute favorite way to experience the road and the many wonders found along the way. Couchsurfing is a constant reminder of the beautiful things that can happen in the spaces where we care first and ask questions later.


Listening to, creating and sharing music and other forms of art. Cooking. Discovering more about myself and the rest of our world.
