About Me

CURRENT MISSION

learn to be more present; fully connecting with each passing moment, because there will never be another one just like it again

ABOUT ME

I believe in making the most out of life, so I tend to stay very active; constantly looking for new ways to enjoy my surroundings and new things to learn.I appreciate the little things in life...like discovering a new song, a day with awesome weather, a great meal, finding a some cool street art or an interesting area to explore.

PHILOSOPHY

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."
— Paulo Coelho

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
—Dr. Seuss

“Imagine a speck of dust next to a planet a billion times the size of earth. The speck of dust represents the odds in favour of your being born; the huge planet would be the odds against it. So stop sweating the small stuff. Don’t be like the ingrate who got a castle as a present and worried about the mildew in the bathroom. Stop looking at the gift horse in the mouth – remember you are a Black Swan”
—  Naseem Taleb

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've stayed with some wonderful hosts in Europe, and hung out with travelers who were visiting the LA area to show them around. I've also met up with couchsurfers at festivals and other events in the US and South America, and have recently had a few opportunities to host travelers, and will continue to host whenever I get the chance. It has been a great way to meet other fun, like-minded people, and to experience places in much more meaningful ways than would ever be possible otherwise. I'm so glad this community exists and can't wait to meet more people here!

Interests

Music, art/design, travel, yoga, bike riding, bodies of water, anything outdoors

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a sucker for good music and am always discovering music that resonates in my soul. Here are some that are currently on my favorites list:

Rising Appalachia, The Polish Ambassador, Wildlight, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bomba Estereo, Andrew Bird, Atmosphere, Band of Horses, Blind Pilot, Crystal Fighters, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Local Natives, the National, Pink Floyd, Portugal. the Man, Radiohead, the Rolling Stones, Wilco, Yeasayer...I'm also into sound healing and mantra.

I also love a good movie or a good book, but don't really have specific favorites...it just depends on my mood.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Never having been outside of North America, at the age of 26, I quit my full-time job and decided to take my freelance projects on the road so that I could get to know more of the world. Now, three years later, I'm addicted to this lifestyle and am doing and seeing amazing things and meeting great people every day!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach yoga, meditation, and vocal meditation practices.
