About Me


Getting adjusted to my new home in France


I am a recent University graduate who has recently returned back to the US after spending a year Studying abroad and traveling in Spain and Peru. I generally live in Seattle when I am not traveling (Although, in the last couple of years I have been away more than home). My main interests are eating good food, listening to music, reading, occasional artistic endeavors, learning and speaking in new languages, and traveling as much as possible. My traveling abroad has inspired me to see more of my own country; a desire that has prompted a short 3 week road trip in an attempt to get better acquainted with my own country before planning my next adventure away from home base.


There is nothing that can educate you more than learning from personal experience. I go somewhere new every chance I get.

I have had the opportunity to CouchSurf on a couple of occasions in Istanbul, Turkey and Arequipa, Peru. I have also had one CouchSurfer when I was living in Lima, Per. All of these experiences were great and I am ready for more.


Music from everywhere, new places, new food, new experiences, learning, walking, meeting new people, scrabble, reading, crafts. I also really love situations, people, or places that make you pause for a long while and think something along the lines of "Well....thats different" or "Who possibly thought that was a good idea?" Examples of this: A dog and car wash the man who lives in Seattle who is identified by his clothing of neon scarves.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are to many to name... A festival in a mountain village in Peru... wandering for hours in Istanbul... A cave full of puppies in Spain...It is really quite difficult to choose specific events.
