About Me


A nomad I will remain for life, in love with distant and uncharted places.


I'm very open minded and easy to get a long with. Just looking for some good times. I backpacked through Europe in the spring of 2010 and met some great people through CS want to give back by sharing my couch. I love music, in fact I probably wouldn't survive travel without my ipod. I am going to school to be a writer and seeing places all over the world is only more inspiring to my profession.

I hope couchsurfing will give me the experience to meet fun and interesting people on my travels, :)


Keep an open mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people when I can and also try to participate in CS meetups.


I've met some amazing people from CS with interesting stories and diverse cultures. There is nothing more I love than late nights with some tea or wine discussing different world perspectives.


Music, Literature, and Exploration. Photography. Good Conversation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

went to school in Madrid, Spain. then backpacked for 3weeks by myself. Changed my life.

When I graduated college I decided to reject the 9-5 routine and take a job teaching English in Seoul, South Korea. I love meeting new people and having days with no plans which I am free to explore.

Teach, Learn, Share

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”
