--Teaching a kids in the arts camp this October!!!!--
Born and raised in Knoxville the Scruffy Little City. I want to be a part of it's rebirth into the Maker City it is becoming today. I studied photography, printmaking, and art history at the University of Tennessee and graduated in 2016. I'm trying to start an online vintage store. *** Scruffy City Vintage *** check it out on Instagram and Etsy. I'm still working to put it together. Coming Soon!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Hoping to open up my world and meet new people. I want to keep moving, keep living, make memories. I love traveling with strangers. I am now hoping to travel for vintage buying trips.
I love photography and alternative processes. Maker and collector of weird clothes. Always looking for my next project and new skill. I hope to travel and meet lots of new people. My passions are creating, learning, exploring. I really want to learn Neon arts!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I spent a month abroad with six girls I did not know. It was an amazing experience. Wish to go back.
The store I'm working at told me they are closing up. It's just the motivation I needed to try something different. The day after my last day I hope to hop in my car and start my own business via a Philly vintage buying trip.
Teach, Learn, Share
Would love to show you around. Take the canoe out! Bike ride (we have bike rentals, but I might be able to lend you one.) I don't mountain bike, but our mountain bike trails are a little famous.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm an open minded person looking to meet new people. I would love to host you in the future! East Tennessee has a lot to do: waterways (I have a canoe!), quarries, rock walls, hikes, greenways, a cute downtown, large used bookstore, free art museum. My mom has rooms in town or we have a 4 bedroom (very rustic) cabin on the water.
