About Me


To travel until I can't travel anymore


I guess since its for this site I'll get to what's relevant to it. Right now I'm driven by a desire to travel, see and experience as much of the world while I can. I started college early so I have a bit of a hard start over most people entering grad school and I want to take this time I have, kind of in between spaces and places, to really live while I can still recover from crazy trips and adventures after a good night sleep. I love music, love, food, people, drinks, the experience its all about the drive to see and do right now, which brings me to why I'm here, I want to hopefully meet people who are in the places I'm going or have been that can help me avoid the awkward phase of being in a new place with no idea of where to go and no one to see.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm only looking to meet people/find places to crash but once I'm settled into what will be my new apartment I'll gladly host people... I certainly hosted a lot of people on my couch and floor of my old apartment before I was ever a couch surfer.


I haven't had any official couch surfing experiences so far but I've had a lot of people move through the different places I've lived over the years. I'm also hoping to wrack up a lot of couch surfing experiences over the next year. I'm planning a big trip around south East Asia and Europe, really just keep going until the money is gone.


Well obviously since I'm here I like to travel, I'm also a bit of a foody which does get in the way of cheap travels. I've also rediscovered a joy of writing and I've been working on a new project this trip.
