About Me


I’ve learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.'” - Maya Angelou


I'm very easy going and respectful and all I ask is that you be the same. I like to meet new people and travel when I can. Please ask me questions! I'm an open book.


Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've really only been hosting. I plan to travel more next year and get to surfing! I have to admit though...I can be a bit of a hermit. I'm happy to open up my home and let you stay here, unfortunately, I work quite a bit and my free time is used for running errands or even just catching up on some sleep and I may not be able to show you around. I can tell you how to get to places around LA and suggest areas for you to go but please don't feel offended if I'm not available. I think Couch Surfing is an amazing project and I fully support it. It's just tough for me to really spend a lot of time with my surfers.
