About Me


I am going to explore Panama by bicycle in December 2013


I am an open minded, pure hearted, fun loving individual. I left my full time position as a wilderness field instructor, working in the desert of southern Utah in 2011 to start school. I have recently earned my 2 year associates degree and am currently taking prerequisites to earn a bachelors in Nursing. I continue to work with trouble youth in the desert during school breaks.
I love music, people, adventure, nature, and playing outside. I snowboard all winter, and I love canyoning, trail running, biking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enthusiastically engage with interesting people from all over at home and when travelling. I enjoy participating in conversations, and adventures. If anyone has any questions or needs help, especially about visiting Utah, please ask. I am mostly on here to connect with people to exchange information as having someone here (for you) or there (for me) to answer questions is invaluable.


I have lived in many places and travels quite a bit. I have slept on many a couch, especially my friend Shawna Calt's whom I have stay with for extended periods. I have worked for years in the outdoors, living in close quarters and traveling with coworkers and clients whom I had not known well at first. I have become used to sharing spaces and communicating. There is a lot to be said for what can be gained for venturing somewhere with others, as well as alone.
