About Me


I have always taken every opportunity to travel while in school or working. Most recently, I took what I call an “adult gap year” and travelled from summer 2021-summer 2022. Since then, I have moved to the Seattle area.


When I travel, I try to see everything while also trying to experience the culture of the place and meet new people. I love art and culture. I enjoy both city trips and nature trips. I promise to be a respectful host and guest!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Its the greatest way to meet awesome people when traveling! And while not traveling though events! You share so much more than just a place to stay.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A good time and company. I would like to get to know you. I can be an independent traveler if you are busy. I'm a pretty flexible guest. If you are busy but are still nice enough to host me, I can keep myself busy and am pretty good at getting around anywhere myself.

Notes for surfers:
