About Me


Keep on movin'


I am currently employed with the Department of Labor in Wilmington, Delaware.

Here are some other highlights of my history:
*Spent a year living in Montana, performing forestry and working with local youth.
*Worked on organic farms in Ireland and Sweden for one summer.
*Lived in Los Angeles for 6 months, working as a part-time teacher and college instructor
*Studied at university in Philly, England, and Israel.
*Worked as a substitute teacher.
*Have a degree in Criminal Justice.

I pretty much try to appreciate everything and live by the motto "I'll try anything once." I love all sorts of music, from jazz to country.

I like to cook, walk, bike write, read, garden, and sing to myself. My favorite food is soup- no specific soup, just soup in general.

I've met some great people through couchsurfing, and I look forward to meeting some more.


I live life to learn, to change, to take chances.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I crashed on a few couches in Spain, France, and England. Met some quality folks in the process.


I am interested in anything and everything new and surprising, extraordinary and unusual, strange and wonderful.
