About Me


If you take what you have and don't ask for more you'll end up with more in the future


I'm outgoing, friendly, talkative. I love traveling, meeting new people. I enjoy challenges. I love food! Food brings people together!
I'm a risk taker, independent, open-minded, accepting and really just trying to keep learning about life as I take this incredible journey!


Why would you ever wait???? There is no better time than now!

You never know when or how we can meet again!!

The grass will always be greener on the otherside

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to meet travelers coming through my area, I surf, I meet up! I try to host if I get requests.
I try to spread that Couchsurfing love as best as I can; Representing positive interaction with travelers and locals.


I've met a lot of people through Couchsurfing. Every experience has been great. The people involved in this network are all open and fun individuals. I have to admit that most of the CS friends I've made in the past two years have become regular friends. People from all over the world! I love that couchsurfing does that!
Surfed in Vietnam and Malaysia while traveling!!
