Destination Death or Better Days
Living life sober and cruelty free. Making the world a better place, one cupcake at a time.
I was born and raised in California. After graduating from UCSC I decided to move to Europe. Since then, I have traveled to many places and met lots of interesting people and I plan on continuing to do so for as long as I can.
I'm vegan and straight edge. That means I don't eat or use animal products and I don't drink alcohol or smoke or do drugs. That, of course, doesn't mean I don't like to have fun. Aside from traveling, I enjoy exploring nature, going on bike rides in the city, playing soccer, cooking elegant dinners for friends, playing guitar, going to shows... the list goes on.
We have more sense than lies.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I try to host as much as possible, but since I live in a small city, not many people travel here. I have only been able to surf a few times, but hopefully I will be able to more in the future. I also try to go to CS events in my area when I have time.
I've hosted a few times and surfed once. It's great! I love meeting new people and experiencing new places and things!

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to bake without using animal products and how to speak English :P
I'd really like to learn to speak Dutch, Polish, Swedish, and Norwegian. Oh, and I want to learn to screen print and how to grow a garden, or at least keep my plants from withering!
