About Me


have as many fun and cool experiences as I possibly can.


I'm a young student aspiring to get a psychology degree and work with dolphins. Huge animal lover; my dog is my best friend. I'm a quiet person but still outgoing. I love to travel and make the most out of everyday.

I have been to 46 states (missing Hawaii, Alaska, Maine, and Louisiana), Canada, and Mexico. My grandmother went to all 7 continents and I strive to do the same. I am obsessed with the French culture and language and would love to be an au pair there for a few years. I want to move to Australia for a little and study on the Great Barrier Reef. I want to fill my life with adventures and fun people.


"Experience. Dream. Risk. Close your eyes and jump. Enjoy the freefall. Choose exhilaration over comfort. Choose magic over predictability. Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of everyday life. Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut. Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to another. Make millions of mistakes so that you will know how to choose what you really need. Know when to hold on and when to let go. Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge. Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light. Be wrong every once in a while, and don't be afraid to admit it. Awaken to the brilliance in ordinary moments. Tell the truth about yourself no matter what the cost. Own your reality without apology. See goodness in the world. Be Bold. Be Fierce. Be Grateful. Be Wild, Crazy and Gloriously Free. Be You."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I know my family would be very welcoming of people staying, but we aren't in the situation to host right now. But I would love to couchsurf whenever possible. I would love to travel the world this way, and I would absolutely love to help out as many people with the same dream.


I've never couchsurfed myself, but it runs in the family. I have been to a few Detroit couch surfing events and helped out with the couch crash there a few years ago. Have been waiting for the right opportunity to try it out.


I'm a very artsy person who happens to not be very good at art. I'm a big supporter of local music and activities. I SCUBA and love marine life. Any animals in general really. I watch a lot of TV and movies.

Music, Movies, and Books

I will generally like some music from all genres. I'm a very big supporter of local music and am very loyal to my favorite bands.

I love to watch all kinds of movies, but when I'm by myself, I end up watching a lot of weird romantic comedies and independent dramas.

When I read I get too into a book to function as a human for a few days. So I end up reading very sporadically.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've played the french horn for nearly a decade, if that's ever been an interest of someones. I would love to learn all about boating and more aquatic things.
