About Me


Traveling around for winter break and exploring new cultures and customs!!


I am always in search of a new adventure. I have just returned from a small trip around the world which started in Spain and all around Europe and then a short stint in Japan. I have a love of languages and I want to learn more about the different cultures of the world.


I believe not in an accumulation of things but rather an accumulation of experiences. because things don't do you any good when you're dead.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted surfers while I was in California. And now I am out in the world doing some surfing of my own!


I use to host students from all parts of the world while I was an international ambassador in college.


I am interested in learning about new cultures, languages and customs. I am interested in people and about different perspectives on life.
