A pot of candor, a few sprinkles of tact
Enthusiastic as hell about the outdoors. I love traveling and finding new adventures. I like to create and build. I'm an avid learner. I'm pretty outgoing but I also like being alone. I have a big heart and I'm a pretty easygoing person. I like kindness and I appreciate simplicity, but I can sometimes forget that when I'm practicing directness.
No couch at the moment!
I try to stay as humble as I can
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Surfing around the U.S. in 2012-2013. Will definitely be hosting in the future!
