About Me


To talk to everyone, eat everything, learn as much as I can, and see all the sights!


I'm trying to explore different ways of living my life, see the world, and figure out where I want to be and what I'm going to do there. I love good food, beer, and wine, and am always happy to share a meal with anyone. Most of my free time is spent biking, attempting to play my new guitar and ukulele, cooking, baking, and reading. Interesting people and interesting conversations keep me going. I'm always looking for new people to meet and new places to see!


The most important things in life are the people I spend it with. Everything else is just icing on the cake.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed a couple times, and have had fantastic experiences. I've also met surfers staying with friends of mine, and they've always been great. Now I've got a place where I can host, and I'm excited to meet travelers coming through Chicago!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a flock of sheep standing on top of a bus on a mountain road in Guatemala. I'm still not sure how they got up there or kept from falling off.
