About Me


To gain knowledge through new experiences and share my knowledge with students all over the world.


I was born and raised in a small, rural farming community in the Midwest United States. I attended a university in St. Louis, Missouri and then moved to San Francisco to begin my teaching career.

I am passionate about teaching and I love traveling, so I earned my TEFL certificate and began teaching English internationally. Now, I live and work at a private school in Istanbul, Turkey.

I love living in Istanbul. It is an exciting, vibrant city with wonderful people. I have met so many great people since I moved to Turkey. I am looking forward to hosting travelers in Istanbul and showing them around this beautiful city. I am also hoping to travel to many nearby cities and neighboring countries.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to CouchSurfing but I look forward to the new experiences I will have.


Traveling (of course!)
Outdoor Recreation = such as hiking, camping, rockclimbing, skiing, and boating.
I have never skydived, but I think I would like it.
I am really interested in food. I like trying new cuisine in new places.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn other languages. Right now, my Turkish is not very strong, but I am really working hard to improve it.

From my experiences so far, I have seen that the best way to learn a new langague by trying to use it to communicate with others.
