About Me


Keep on truckin'


I'm a very laid-back individual. I enjoy traveling (obviously), reading, working, running, talking, dreaming, drinking, cooking, riding my bike, playing with the dog, laughing, and all things fun. I'm a bit of a cinephile, studying film in college and making my own, as well as frequenting local cinemas several times a week. I love my job at the Library- making a difference in my community- and spreading information to the masses! I believe in connecting with other people from all walks of life, in my hometown or abroad; we have so much to learn from one another.


Nothing to it but to do it

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The best things in life are free; Therefore, let me sleep on your couch and you can sleep on mine.


I joined years ago but haven't really experienced the full Couchsurfing phenomenon. I met a gal back then and she needed a place to stay so I offered my couch. She told me about this community and here I am.

Marianna and I usually ONLY host International travelers, though we try to be flexible.


If I'm not traveling, or thinking about traveling, or planning a trip somewhere... I believe I will wither away and die.
