About Me


Continually grow and gain knowledge and experiences through travel


I am naturally inquisitive and curious person. I love learning constantly, trying to learn something new everyday.


I feel I live life with a healthy balance of going with the flow and planning a few things out. I am constantly trying to learn and expand all that I can, I love to learn and meet new people, try new things, experience new things. Live to grow your knowledge base, never stop learning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My basic answer to this would be whether or not you want to stay at my house or anywhere else in Austin, if you're in the city all I want to do, to the best of my ability, is to make your time here a memorable experience. I love being able to meet new people from all over.


After having a few people hosted at my house and a few people I have met up with while in the city I love couch surfing and have had a great time chatting and learning more and more about other experiences with couch surfing.


I am music lover who likes to be outside loves meeting new people going new places and traveling as much as I can. I love to play whatever instrument I can get my hands on. I enjoy painting whenever I can, but seem to not find time for it sometimes. I love to have my camera with me to capture life as it happens.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to pretty extensive variety of music. I love trying to play anything on whatever instrument I can get my hands on. My love is blues guitar, which Stevie Ray Vaughan was the reason I started playing. Otherwise lately I've been on more of a house and or electronic kick trying my hand at creating some of my own mixes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I plan to make this list much longer... but based on my experiences thus far, I would say repelling down a waterfall in the middle of the jungle in Mexico was pretty amazing. Kalalau lookout in Kauai was by far the most amazing place I have been thus far the views and the hike that we took to the far end of one of the cliffs was breathtaking.
