About Me


To be a traveler, not a tourist


I've got red hair (as I'm sure you've noticed) and I get sunburned easily. Stupid fair skin.

I've got lots of energy and enjoy being cheerful. There's always something to be happy about!


There is good in everyone. I'd much rather believe the best of someone and be disappointed than have to assume the worse.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm looking to become more a part of the Couchsurfing community. I've gained so much from Couchsurfing, now I want to give something back.


Had a bunch couchsurfers come through and I surfed a lot of couches on my way through Europe and South America. Never had a bad experience and more good experiences are welcome!


I love to drive. Cruising during the summer in a fast convertible by the ocean is my idea of bliss. I got a motorcycle in 2009 and I'm hooked! I'm going to be riding for years to come, I can tell. I love snowboarding and head up the mountain whenever I can. I skied since I was 4 as well but snowboarding is where it's at. I love to travel and hitchhiked around Europe for 6 monthes. I'm a fan of sports and anything athletic. I play beach volleyball when the weather is right and put up with getting sand in my pants. I've been hang gliding and skydiving and *need* to go again.

I'm always willing to try something at least once.

But what can I say I just like having fun!

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything and everything. I like fantasy and sci-fi books by choice but I can enjoy just about anything. I'm always looking for book suggestions.

I hate choosing a "favourite" band and my music taste is eclectic. But I enjoy: The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, The White Stripes, The National, The Tragically Hip, Gun and Roses, Pink Floyd, Scissor Sisters, Arctic Monkeys, Jet, AFI, Johnny Cash, Ok Go, Priestess, Sublime, Rise Against, The Strokes, Daft Punk, Infected Mushroom, Paul Oakenfold, Kill Hannah, Collective Soul, Black Sabbath, Bush, Radiohead, Coldplay, Dandy Warhols, Eve 6, Mindless Self Indulgence, Moby, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Oasis, A Perfect Circle, Quarashi, The Raconteurs, Rage Against the Machine, The Servant, Three Days Grace, System of a Down, U2, Weezer, Wolfmother and so much more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked the breadth of Europe and the length of South America.
