About Me

I work in public relations / communications for a federal agency.

I'm a non-smoker, top-shelf drinker, liberally minded, cynically optimistic type of person. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love unadulterated cultural exchange...whether you're from Tanzania or Tuscon. Couchsurfing lets you help and meet people at the same time. Win, win.


Hiking, scuba diving, traveling, people watching, live music, arts, filmography, history, archaeology.

Music, Movies, and Books

Despite being from the midwest, I actually loath country music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I backpacked around (literally) the globe for 80 days. Cliche, yes. Amazing, even more yes.

Teach, Learn, Share

When life tries to push you back, you simply need to dig in your heels and push forward even harder.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Conversation, history of Kansas City, coffee.

Countries I’ve Visited

Armenia, Cambodia, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Thailand
