About Me


Trying to figure out if London is as great as everyone says it is.


Originally from Tampa, Florida, I have been living in Warsaw for the past two years. I really enjoy living overseas and don't have any plans to permanently move back to the US.

I've done a couple long-term solo trips in Europe and have spent several months at a time in different regions of sub-saharan Africa. Though I am a very independent traveler, I am looking to feel more settled in my new location by establishing some new friendships with other expats and couchsurfers.

From February to May 2016 I will be in London. Unfortunately my housing situation does not allow me to host, but I'm happy to meet up!


"Difference is normal"- advice given by my Intercultural Communication professor my last semester of undergrad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed quite a bit and hosted a few times. I also attend meetups.


Couchsurfing has been a great way to meet people when moving to a new city.


coffee, culture, photography, food, shopping, language, hiking, history, geography

Music, Movies, and Books

My Spotify radio is usually set to anything 90s.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Each trip has been a unique experience, though the most exhilarating feeling was boarding the plane leaving JFK for my first solo travel (which was also my first CS experience!)
