About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See new sights, feel new feelings, and make some friends.

ABOUT ME

I'm an adventurer and an explorer.

I grew up just outside Dallas, Texas and moved to Chicago, Illinois for college. I just graduated in December 2012 and I'm starting a job in April 2013. In the mean time, I'm traveling through New Zealand and Australia.

PHILOSOPHY

Explore and Express - what's life if you don't experience and contribute?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm traveling to New Zealand and Australia for January - March 2013. I'd love to make some friends!

When I live back in Chicago, I'm happy to host surfers!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've done similar things but not through this website.
I lived with a family on their farm in Uganda for 2.5 months last summer.

Interests

Advocacy for the voiceless

Music, Movies & Books

Catcher in the Rye will be my favorite for another few years...

On the Road by Jack Kerouac

Jailbird by Kurt Vonnegut

Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I attended the 12th World Nobel Peace Summit in Chicago in April 2012.
I interviewed several of the Nobel Peace Prize winners... that was awesome.

Also, in 2011, I lived on the banks of the Nile on a Ugandan farm!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm really into slam poetry performance. I'm always happy to share my poetry or go to an event where I can hear other people share theirs.

Countries I've Visited

Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Spain, Uganda

Countries I've Lived In

United States
