About Me


travel, teach, learn


I moved around the U.S. as a kid, and have moved too many times as an adult. Pieces of me are scattered around the globe. My son was born in 2016 and we have three dogs. We moved to Azerbaijan from Dominican Republic in August 2022. I spent two very happy years in Sudan and three beautiful years in Kodiak, Alaska. Sometimes I miss those places so much it hurts, but I have "itchy feet."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've enjoyed hosting and showing travelers around in Las Vegas, Kodiak, Hofuf, Bologna, Khartoum, and Bangkok!


I've traveled with, met, and hosted many wonderful couchsurfers... or 'couchpeople' as my friend once called them. I've couchsurfed numerous times and all experiences were perfect thanks to great hosts!
