About Me


Living a creative life


I'm conscientious and appreciate community and meaningful connections. I love nature, and enjoy learning and sharing ideas and perspectives.


Love nature, 'Do unto others', pursue your gifts, and value meaning over things or accomplishments. Do it with heart, even if that means making a mistake, stay true to yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My travel style is usually pretty light. I'm clean and neat, and like to enjoy community and also help out where I can.


I've couchsurfed many times before CS, though I didn't call it that at the time.


I enjoy storytelling, animation, film, and creativity in general. I'm an avid backpacker and nature lover. I'm a kid at heart and enjoy doing things that keep me connected to that part of life.
