About Me

Love the journey

Bug me at my Insta since the Couchsurfing app is pretty clunky:

Just got back from 6 months in Thailand. It was more than I could have ever dreamed of.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Honestly, I originally started because I was a college student "ballin' on a budget," but after one immensely generous and loving host let me stay at his beautiful home, my eyes were open to the beauty of this community. And as my friends and I traveled through Texas, the CouchSurfing community truly embraced us.

This is a beautiful experience that I would love to contribute to. My travels have gained a new depth to experience, and a new way to share these experiences with the world.


Guitar, drums (newbie), mountain biking, boating, meditation, acro yoga, rock climbing. All of it. I just love all of it.

Music, Movies, and Books

- - - - Music - - - -
Up until a few years ago, I never paid much attention to lyrics. When I finally did, I was shocked at the depth of music I’d been missing out on. Thanks to the song Yesterday by Atmosphere, my eyes have finally opened.

Some others:

Jack Johnson

The Beatles

Bob Marley

John Butler Trio



Kendrick Lamar

Raça Negra


Red Hot Chili Peppers

Dean Martin

Teebs (look 'em up!)

Tune Yards

Andrew Bird (The music video to Left Handed Kisses is great)

Norah Jones (love love love her voice)

Let's not forget the chill stuff and electronic brain damage:



Chrome Sparks

Com Truise

Flight Facilities

Zeds Dead



Skrillex (yup)

RL Grime (so grimey)



There's this one song that I always find interesting: BTSTU by Jai Paul.

- - - - Movies - - - -

Slumdog Millionaire

The Notebook (Yeah, yeah)

The Green Mile (Tom Hanks is my man!)

Um... the new Beauty and The Beast with Emma Watson.

Her with Joaquin Phoenix

American Beauty, because Kevin Spacey is beautiful. I won't even start my rant.

Rush Hour is pretty high up there, too.

I love my movies, so I'll stop here while the list is... short.

- - - - Books - - - -

The most memorable book I’ve read was My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor. I strongly suggest it. She also has a very moving TED talk for brevity and a more engaging explanation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Simply, bringing my family together. It’s been a beautiful experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Patience, for all that is good takes time.

Love for the open mind. This life has so much to offer, yet we’re so easily blinded.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My passion for life and love itself. Good laughs and good drinks :D

Sightseeing of local attractions, exploration for new ones... my favorite. Bring a bike if you can!

A comfy home and some bomb hammocks 😁

Good food and loving friends, peace and quiet, whichever you prefer!
