About Me


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


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.


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

Why I’m on 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!


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.


Advocacy for the voiceless

Music, Movies, and Books

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.
