About Me


Live Alive.


I'm always up for any kind of experience, whether it be trekking through the mountains with just a backpack or simply relaxing on a beach. People are incredible to me and I love making connections through good conversations over a cup of tea.

I'm very easygoing and love nothing more than traveling, friends and family, and making music (piano/banjo/singing). I believe in the goodness of humanity, and that everyone has something valuable to share. I'm always striving to learn as much as I possibly can (unless it involves math) and better myself, while at the same time giving everything I have to offer whenever possible and of course having fun along the way.

As for future plans, as soon as I graduate, I'm heading to Rio for the 2014 World Cup and then taking off to roadtrip the whole Australian continent for a year (woo!)


We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. -Dr. Seuss

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. -Albert Einstein

Wherever you go, go with all your heart. -Confucius

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm looking to meet like minded people with a passion for travel and life...share some stories and experiences and learn new things. Pretty much just have a grand old time.

I currently live in a college dorm, so I am unable to host at the moment, but if you are in the area I would love to show you around.

Also, lease do feel free to drop a message saying hello! I would be more than happy to offer travel tips if you're planning to visit the area or just have a good chat about anything else.


I am brand new to traveling and CouchSurfing, so I have yet to experience all it has to offer. I am very much looking forward to meeting fellow travelers and making friends in the near future though.

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything and everything really!
When it comes to movies, I love a good romantic comedy :) And also anything set in a historical time period. No scary ones though, please ah.
As far as books go, I absolutely love philosophy and psychology, so anything about those is wonderful. Tragic novels are also great.
Music is one of the things I am most passionate about. I love every kind, and will probably talk to you about it for hours.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park.
-Skydiving and seeing the Cascades, Olympics, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood all at the same time from 13,000 feet above ground.
-Camping and roadtripping all over America with my family...some of my best memories :)
