About Me


To never limit the expansion of my mind.


Even though I am small town Hoosier homebody, I have a strong desire to experience as much of the world as I can. I recently graduated from Purdue in Engineering and just started a new job in Temecula. As an engineer, I am practical and hard working. I love learning, and I make it my goal to never stop.
I also love being outdoors and being on my bike. When I'm not working, I'm surrounded by my close friends and family--they are what drive me.


Always keep an open heart. You miss so much of life with the doors closed.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At first I was a little apprehensive, but one experience completely changed my opinion of Couchsurfing. My host was wonderful and I felt right at home.
Since then, I've stayed at a couple places in Europe and have hosted people in my home and they all were positive experiences. I look forward to continuing the my CouchSurfing adventure!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing and exploring the washed up trees on Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, GA completely unleashed my childish curiosity. Where did these trees come from? The trees are dried out skeletons--bone white, intact and massive. Some of the trees roots are so intertwined that they remained together as one piece. There was something strangely romantic about seeing two trees on their sides, not know which roots belonged to which tree, together long after death. The trunks scattered over the sand are set in front of the ocean sound. Truly beautiful.
