About Me


deserts of the southwest


I like to say that I am simple yet complex.

I try to soak up and enjoy each moment in this thing called life. I'm easy going, adventure seeking, independent, curious, friendly, and open-minded. I love anything outdoors and it is where I feel most at home. Camping, hiking, reading & backpacking are my top things that I enjoy.

Music and creativity/art is also very important to me I love learning and have many interests and so much more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I sleep on other couches, and other's sleep on mine, no really, now!!

I enjoy connecting with the local CouchSurfing members in my home away from home area, where ever that is at the moment.

Also, I love to meet and greet with people from all over the world when I am traveling, share stories, laugh, experience new cultures, and offer advice to other travelers.

To experience, learn, share, and have fun!
