About Me

————————————————————————
********PLEASE READ PART OF MY PROFILE BEFORE SENDING ME A REQUEST**********
————————————————————————

Over here it’s more than a couch, you get your own bedroom and bathroom (refer to pictures) so forgive me if I sound strict because i’m not. I simply want a little consideration that’s all 😃

... Please be clean (pick up after yourself)

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 requests only if you fit this criteria above.
If you have read up until this point enter 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 your 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 ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I’ve gone to School in other Countries.

Teach, Learn, Share

Cooking a good meal is like the best thing!

If you love languages, we need to talk!

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 In DC for Homecoming Twice and 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, airline loopholes.. economic ways to travel on a budget and still get your needs met.. free sleeping arrangements.. stuff like that 😉

I’ve literally done most of all the cool stuff in Florida so I’m a resource for adventure here.
