About Me

I was born in California and moved to Florida when I was 12 years old. I consider Florida my home; it has my family, friends and heart.

I recently quit my job teaching English as a second language to pursue a career in journalism. I'm currently looking for a job as a copywriter and would ultimately like to be a travel writer.

In between I'm always looking for an adventure whether it's backpacking Europe, traveling to Cuba, or exploring my hometown of Orlando.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've only met amazing and awesome people on Couchsurfing. I love the concept of offering your home to a traveler and in return one day someone will off their home to you. Staying in a hotel or hostel is never the same experience. You need the raw insight and help from a local for a true adventure.


Wanderlust is real. I want to travel everywhere and see everything before I'm old and don't have the energy anymore.

My other interests include, hiking, meditating, journaling, reading, juicing, meeting new people, and learning about other cultures and countries.
