About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Survive the day to day.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in the south of New Mexico. I come from a family of travelers, my grandfather has sailed around the world and my mother grew up on a boat and then lived in Europe. Currently I have siblings on four continents. So it has always been a way of life for me. I love meeting people and I have had some amazing experiences through couchsurfing and hospitality club.

PHILOSOPHY

I want the warmth of the sun on my face and the cool of the wind at my back. Let lady providence decide where I sleep.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have had members of hospitality club stay at my place and I promote the idea, I think its a great one.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couchsurfed through southeast Europe and a few times in the US. I have had incredible experiences, and the people I have met have been interesting and generous.

Interests

I love literature, poetry, architecture, art, hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing, scuba diving, and meeting people. I also enjoy languages and more importantly good food and great conversations.
