Join Couchsurfing to see Mackenzie’s full profile.
To connect with, grow with, and learn from as many people as possible.
Rounding out 2 years of travel! I'm a wannabe essayist, incurable optimist, and general enthusiast. My favorite things are: eating cheap food with quality people, having a good cup of coffee at sunrise, drinking good beer, discussing "big" ideas, and talking long walks in beautiful places.
Ultimately, I value human connection, kindness, learning, and spontaneity above all else.
Conectarse con y aprender de tanta gente como sea posible.
Soy escritora esperanzada, optimista incurable, y entusiasta en general. Mis cosas favoritas son: comiendo comida barata con gente interesante, tomando una buena cafe al amanecer, disfrutando una buena cerveza, discutiendo grandes ideas, y dando paseos largos en lugares hermosas.
Por último, me importa amabilidad, aprendizaje, y espontaneidad sobre todo.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet some new friends while I travel! I hope to learn from and be challenged by as many people as possible. I sincerely believe that everyone is extraordinary, and learning what's incredible about the people I encounter always pushes me to be better. Hopefully, I'll have some fun stories to tell, some recipes to share, or something to teach, as well.
Conocer nuevos amigos cuando estoy viajando. Yo creo, sinceramente, que toda la gente es extraordinaria, y aprendiendo lo que es increíble sobre alguien, me hace mejor. Ojalá que tengo algo para compartir (recetas, historias, buenas ondas), o para enseñar también.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been so lucky with all that I've experienced. The things that have felt most "amazing" to me have always been moments when I've given good advice, volunteered in a way that was useful, or overall--found a way to make a positive impact.
I've also been lucky enough to skydive, hike through the Swiss Alps, and get scuba certified. All of which were super extraordinary opportunities.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have experience teaching English. I can cook decently well, and am constantly picking up new recipes. I work in digital marketing, so I'm happy to help volunteer my services with any hosts looking to promote a small business or organization online. I'd be obviously happy as well to help out with chores or maintenance during my stay.
I hope to learn new languages, new recipes, or any new artistic endeavor. But honestly, I want to learn as much as possible about almost anything. I'm constantly looking for ways to grow.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Undying gratitude, good energy, new recipes, an open mind. I like to think I'm good conversationalist, and a gracious guest.
Gratitud eterna, buena energía, nuevas recetas, una mente abierta. Me gusta pensar que soy buen conversador y una invitado cortés.
