About Me

I love adventures, books, cheese, dogs, etc
Ever so often I make a large life decision: quitting job, getting dog, finding job, moving uptown, etc Amid all this, I like adventures, so I seek them out, and I love meeting the kind of people that like to go on adventures with me. That being said, I am more than ok on my own, bumbling about, and discovering new and unexpected places- a gas station turned winery in Kansas, an old foundry in PA, donkey town, hot springs, you get the idea!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was/am traveling cross country, want to give back while I'm home. It's a great way to meet new people and blast open my view of the world.
