About Me

————————————————————————
*****NOTE TO HOSTS I’VE REQUESTED*****
————————————————————————
Thank You for considering my request :) my profile is a little long winded and I hope my references satisfy your requirements 😃

IN A FEW WORDS: I am a very Respectful, Considerate, Clean, Organized and Efficient.
…and I believe I’m Resourceful and Interesting

————————————————————————
***PLEASE READ SECTION BELOW BEFORE SENDING A REQUEST TO SURF WITH ME***
————————————————————————
If you’re cool… I would love to meet you 😁

Due to the constant state of remodeling at my house, accommodations could vary 🤷‍♂️ but currently you could get your own room and bathroom (Room has Couch and Military Cot)
*Also has (Microwave, Fridge, Kettle, Toaster)
*Also has (Private Full Bath with Hot Water)

... Please be clean-ish but I will do a load of laundry upon your departure for the towel and pillow cases, sheets you used obviously

Be mindful of providing your own food, and don’t leave food behind in the fridge 🤨

... Communicate during the process please!

I get A LOT of requests, so please help me not getting overwhelmed by sending me a request only if you fit this criteria above. If you have read up until this point please enter the code word: jambo mark! in the top of your message

————————————————————————
¡¡¡¡ ATTENTION NEW COUCHSURFERS !!!!

... If you do not have references [less than 3 references minimum] and are not verified you should find a way to get personal reference(s). Asking a host like myself to check out Linkedin or Instagram profiles creates work for the host and is not really how this is designed 🤷🏽
Also if myself or someone accepts you and you stay for “FREE” often a $500 value or more, upon departure doing the reference should be your Top Priority and honestly not completing it within a day or two is very rude... Don’t be that person please 🤨 if you’re a new couchsurfer and have read up to this point enter code word: jambo sawa mark!
In the top of your message to get priority ;)

THANK YOU!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I’ve gone to School in other Countries.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you love languages, we need to talk!

I’m Always down to play a game of Monopoly

I was in the ASL “sign language interpreter program” at one point, but had to put it on hold. I plan to go back and become a legitimate interpreter, I consider my fluency level to be 15-20% at the moment it’s A LOT to know, it’s not like a regular language. I’ve been to Gallaudet (The only Deaf University in the USA) In Washington DC twice for Homecoming, I cherish those experiences.

I’ve started Sailing and it’s kinda awesome, plan to continue.. wanna get away 😎⛵️

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a lot of little travel secrets.. economic ways to travel on a budget and still get your needs met.. free sleeping arrangements.. did you know you can get a private bathroom/hot shower at nearly all Truck Stop gas stations [Flying J, Petro, Loves, TA, Pilot] for $12 😉

*Wanderu.com (all bus and train travel) App
*Ridehitch.com (ride share only Florida) App

Worldpackers and Workaway Apps are 🔥
