About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to live a mad, passionate, extraordinary life

ABOUT ME

I'm silly. I'm emotional. I'm loving. I'm insecure. I'm independent. I'm awkward. I randomly burst into song. I think fart jokes are funny. I'm equal parts loud, obnoxious, quiet, and sensitive. I have a crush on William Shatner. I LOVE to go out and go dancing but I look like I'm having an epileptic fit when I dance. I'm afraid of squirrels. I'm a karaoke master. I care about those who are less fortunate, and I plan to save the world someday.

PHILOSOPHY

What things in life bring you the most joy? Pursue those with all your soul.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since becoming a CS member, I've hosted dozens of surfers, and I've met incredible, lifelong friends through my experiences with CS. It's changed how I travel and how I see the places I visit. visited 30 states (60%)Create your own visited map of The United States or Like this? try: Google Ransom Note

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My guests have all been wonderful! They have so many great stories to share about themselves and their life experiences. My hosts have been equally wonderful; the kindest, most generous people I've met in my life. I treasure my CS friendships to an enormous degree.

Interests

people, movies, music, long conversations about nothing and everything, hugs, volunteering, saving the world, laughing as loud as I can.

Music, Movies & Books

music-I have the most random assortment of music on the planet; rock, new wave, motown, show tunes, jazz, blues, indie rock (LOVE Damien Rice), alternative, oldies, Spanish, reggaeton, classical, metal, electronica, world, punk, etc. I'm always open to new music suggestions

movies-whatever makes me laugh

books-ones that aren't overly pretentious. I'm not ashamed to admit that one of my favorite books ever was written by Judy Blume. I'm a big fan of Beat Generation stuff, especially "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac; big surprise, given my love for traveling and being on the road.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Dancing around a fire with Tibetans in Southwestern Gansu. Sunrise at Angkor Wat. Volunteering at a Cambodian orphanage. Donating blood at a Children's hospital in Siem Reap. Swimming with elephants in Thailand. Saving baby sea turtles in Florida. Dancing on a bar while it was on fire in Chengdu. Bungee (or is it "Bungy"?) jumping in Macau. Observing the Tomb Sweeping holiday in rural China. Milked a goat in Arkansas. Eating a deep fried spider. Watching a live birth (the most disgustingly beautiful thing I've ever seen).
