About Me


Figuring out a city to move to.


Originally from Tampa, Florida, I've spent the past few years overseas. I'm looking to relocate to a new US city.

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.


"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.
