About Me

Caught the traveling bug and it's becoming difficult to do anything else at this point in my life... I roadtripped across America before heading out to see some other countries (which is why I can't host at the moment). The more I talk to people the more I struggle with the idea that I'll never get to see and do all the incredible things this world (and its people) have to offer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

This sounds like the best way to get immersed in local culture, hang out with local people, and make a new friend. I find hostels are a great way to meet people from different places and philosophies but what better way to get to know a place than through the eyes of someone who sees it regularly.

COUCH SURFING EXPERIENCE
None yet. I have had a couple hosts cancel on me but am looking forward to my first time and am excited about the idea of hosting when I'm back in Los Angeles because I think it would help me see the city through fresh eyes.

Interests

Mountain biking, watching movies, Krav Maga, jokes, going to the gym, surfing, camping, really any kind of sport or physical adventure. I like art (but not so much classical art... I think I find good graffiti art more interesting than the Mona Lisa) and music and food and learning about other cultures and all the little quirks that make us different. I love trying to speak the local language and learning idioms.

On weekend nights I am just as likely to: watch a movie, play video games, hang out with friends, or dance like a white boy to some club music.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have eclectic tastes in music. My playlist can jump from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Skrillex to Hans Zimmer to Britney Spears to Elton John. Bastille and Fitz and the Tantrums are probably my favorite bands at the moment.

The Hunt for Red October is my favorite movie of all time. Two words: Sean. Connery.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ended up spending most of my trip in Ireland with a 65 year old Scottish man I met in a hostel in Cork City. Johnney was a trip in and of himself. Without a phone number or email I recently tracked him down in Glasgow and he didn't just show me his city but a great way of life.

Teach, Learn, Share

Geez... After reading a few profiles I'm not sure I'm worthy to share anything, but man what I'd like to learn. News and history books could never replace the human interaction you get and personal stories from a local person.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd like to think I'm a pretty decent, fun person, and my mantra is not to say "no". A friend in Edinburgh had never hiked up Arthur's Seat despite living there almost her entire life. Guess what we did within hours of my arrival?
