About Me


I'm settling into Silver City, NM and I am eager to start hosting again!

ATTN CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL THRU HIKERS: I will be moving into a cabin north of Silver City some time in May (2016), it is right down the (dirt) road from the CDT. Contact me if you want a place to stay/pitch a tent/warm food/ etc.


If you are in any way prejudice (against any race, sex or sexual orientation) please don't contact me. I like to be open minded and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but being around close minded people is hard for me.


I am on a constant hunt to find where I can call home. I want to travel, but I also want to know where I will plant my roots. I picture a small town with a strong sense of community, where I can participate in local decisions and feel like everybody in the town is my extended family.

Update: Silver City will be my home for a while, and maybe it will be the place where I can plant my roots. Come visit and check out this neat little town! Lots of outdoor things to do and art galleries to visit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Nice friendly people hosting me, nice friendly people being hosted by me


I've had experiences in the past with my friends hosting, and every surfer I've stumbled across is always a great human being. I'd like to add some more stories to my couch surfing experience. I also want to help out any way that I can.
