About Me


To live an unbridled, happy life


"I laugh, I love, I hope, I try. I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry.
And I know you do the same things too.
So we're really not that different, you and I."


Live, laugh, love. And keep it real. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been lucky enough to surf with some wonderful people across the United States, and am excited to start surfing internationally.

I was pretty active in the Dallas community for a couple years but am now in New York! I have shown quite a few people around either Dallas or New York, and look forward to continue doing so.


I have surfed in Alburquerque, Long Beach, Atlanta, Boston, and Montreal.


I love talking to people and listening to their personal stories. It makes understanding the world a whole lot easier.
