About Me


But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see...


I'm back in Iowa City teaching ESL after a year of training teachers in the Philippines. I love meeting new people and welcoming them to Iowa City.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed in Russia and's by far the best way to travel. Since I've been back to Iowa, I've been a host several times. I never thought anyone would be surfing in Iowa, so I'm always very happy to host here!


Couchsurfed in Mongolia and Russia while taking the Trans-Mongolian Railway...greatest travel experiences of my life! I love to share and swap travel stories with fellow couchsurfers.
