About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Love what you do

ABOUT ME

I love being active and always try to keep a smile on my face; why waste time being angry or upset? I believe every day is meant to be enjoyed and that the best way to accomplish this is by constantly exposing yourself to new people and fresh adventures.

I certainly enjoy walking off of the beaten path and try to get involved with activities such as volunteer work, the outdoors, traveling, and things that challenge my mind.

Meeting new people and experiencing different places is a definite interest of mine. I think CouchSurfing is a great way to to accomplish this as it allows you to get a true feel for an area.

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy life...

Happiness is not something to be felt at the end of a journey; it should be experienced throughout.

Help others enjoy life...

"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Less is more...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started Couchsurfing as part of a cross country road trip a few summers ago and loved it. It was a great way to break up the trip and get to know people from different backgrounds...I try to "surf" and host people whenever I have the chance.

Interests

Anything that involves being active or helping other people: medical relief work, surfing, volunteering, frisbee, hockey, running, snowboarding, horseback riding, biking, hiking, backpacking, ...you get the idea.

Music, Movies & Books

I don't own a TV, but certainly enjoy some good tunes. I love any music that has a good beat to it and like listening to country, classic rock, reggae/island, alternative, etc. I can't remember the last time I read a fiction book, but love pushing my mind to new limits with audiobooks and print forms of non-fiction literature.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I did a 6 week road trip across the country with a friend and had the experience of a lifetime. We went to a ton of amazing National Parks: Yosemite, Grand Canyon; and some really awesome cities: San Fran, New Orleans.

I have also done some healthcare work in rural Haiti and absolutely love the people and culture there. My experiences in Haiti have truly been life-changing and have helped shaped me into the person I am today.
