About Me


My approximate location:

**No surfers from August 7-20 or after August 31!!

I'm typically busy with work, school, and other errands so I probably won't have much time to hang out. I'm happy to answer questions and maybe grab a bite but you'll mostly be on your own!

Surfers can either sleep on a fold-out couch or an air bed. I can accommodate two surfers comfortably. If you are a group of three and don't mind sharing the air bed with someone in your group, then I may have room for all of you.

If you send a request and I offer you the couch for any number of days, please confirm or decline within 24 hours. If I don't hear from you by then, I will offer it to someone else.

If I offer you the couch through a public request, please confirm or decline ASAP! I send out invitations to surfers with any dates that match availability and host whoever confirms first!

If you're going to party all night and come back very late, please look for someone else. NO PARTY PEOPLE PLEASE :-)

If you have to cancel, please let me know ASAP so I can give the couch to someone else!

Thank you for visiting my CS profile! I've lived all over the USA and traveled throughout the globe. I try to leave the country at least twice a year.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host as much as possible, however I travel quite a bit myself so I can't always host.


So far, I have only hosted and attended meetings in a few countries. I have never surfed. I've hosted dozens of people from this site and also others such as BeWelcome and HospitalityClub.
