About Me


To do well in my classes, to find ways avoid mediocrity, and to put off entering the "real world" as long as possible.


I'm 19, I have no idea what I want to do with my life, and I love meeting people. I tend to be sarcastic, spontaneous, and energetic. I am a friendly person and I love to make people laugh!

Personal heros: Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Hunter S. Thompson, Walt Whitman, Amy Poehler, Tina fey, Tyler Durden
Dislikes: having painted nails, frat parties, "about me" sections


The world is a ridiculous place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed a bit with my friend who had a profile and I figured it was time to create my own and possibly host people myself.


My (limited) couchsurfing experience had been very positive. I spent a semester in Sweden on exchange and couchsurfing made traveling much more convenient and enjoyable. Having a local to talk to about the city and surrounding areas is so valuable to a traveler and enhances the experience greatly.


Music, sports (specifically soccer), road trips, climbing on top of things, books, eating, sleeping, dancing, digging deeper.

Music, Movies, and Books

Indie, folk, grunge, classic rock, blues rock, and a little bit of terrible pop music depending on the day. Oh and some good dance music when I'm down to party.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moments that have left me awestruck:

Seeing the Northern Lights (I may have teared up a little)
Looking down into the Grand Canyon after having just climbed out of it

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to do a handstand with proper form or maybe a bit about mathematics. I love to share music and stories, I would love to hear about your experience and to tell you about mine. And maybe you could teach me how to cook!
