About Me


Mission? To help the less fortunate. Other than that is be all you can be.


A hard describe myself, I would say I am a young adult with very large aspirations. I am only 19 but am very independent. I like to read, watch tv, drink, workout, and run occasionally. I do not like negative people. If there is any work I can do while I am staying with you feel free to tell me. I am using CS to find a place to stay, I haven't a decent amount of money so a hostel is kind of out of the picture.


A closed-mind is a wasted mind. Always be open to new things, anything you want in this world is obtainable with enough handwork.

I want to get my MBA in Operations Management, get filthy rich, then bankrupt myself to fight child hunger. Cant wait to see the faces on the 1% in New York when i do this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Stayed with a CS'er in SW London, couldnt have asked for a better experience. Thanks Ronald!


In my free time I enjoy running, reading, seeing my family, and above all, being with my friends. I think it is very important to experience the world, and everything it has to offer.

Music, Movies, and Books

Whatever I am in the mood for. Ed Sheeran, Train, Jay-Z, Drake, Walk of The Earth, honestly anything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The sunrise of the Coast of West Africa

Teach, Learn, Share

I just returned (early) from volunteering in the Volta Region of Ghana. I was teaching children about the outside world, intermediate maths, sciences, french, english, and other insightful things. Completely changed who I am and the life I want to live.
