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 skiing and head up the mountain whenever I can. I love to travel, hitchhiked around Europe for 6 monthes and spent 5 months in central and south america. 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 plan to learn to paraglide.

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.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

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

Teach, Learn, Share

Can someone teach me to play the guitar?
