About Me


To find a host family either in The Hague or near The Hague so that I can complete a six month internship with the International Criminal Court. This is a completely non paid internship and all expenses will be out of pocket.


I was born in Northern California and grew up in a small town just outside of Chico where there is a lot of agriculture. My family has been growing and selling almonds from their farm for twenty one years and we market them through various festivals and farmers markets in the north state. Going to school and working have always been aspects of life that I have enjoyed and now that I have recently graduated with my Masters in Political Science it is time to begin the next chapter.

I have always had a job ever since I was in high school. I worked at a skating rink for six years, a pizza place in North Dakota when I was playing hockey up there, the bookstore at my college campus during my undergraduate days and as a teaching associate while I completed my post-grad work.

In September last year I applied for a competitive internship with the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands. Now I am on couch surfing looking for a family that might be willing to host me for my stay.


I try to live my life to the fullest every day

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to make a contribution in whatever way I can. Whether that is doing cleaning around the house, pitching in for the groceries or working out a reasonable price for my stay since it will be more than a few nights.
