About Me


Travel around the western U.S.


I love to travel, meet new people, and share new ideas with friends. Previously I've done three big backpack trips. The first was a nine month trip from Colombia to southern Chile and Argentina and back up to Northern Brazil. Over the summer in grad school I traveled Western and Eastern Europe for 4 months. After grad school I did a 6 month trip around europe and asia.


C'est la vie

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host when I can. Meet up with other surfers. Plan fun and exciting events.


I've had nothing but great experiences. I'm grateful to all my hosts and all the other surfers I've had awesome experiences with


I Iove the outdoors... especially here in Western U.S. with the best variety of outdoor activities--skiing; backpacking, hiking etc.

I'm also an avid reader -- interested in history, philosophy, different cultures and technology.

Of course traveling - I like to go somewhere I can speak the local language and interact with locals
