About Me


professional vagabond


I'm an outdoor educator and trip guide (rock climbing, rafting, backpacking) for companies and organizations in the US, but my work often takes me to different places all over the world. When I'm not traveling for work, I am traveling for fun! Some days I think I want to trade it all for a full-time gig somewhere in one place, so I don't feel like so much of a nomad, but that hasn't happened yet. There's too much left to explore. Also, I'm a big nerd especially when it comes to biology, etymology, grammar, films, Apple products, maps, geography, and puzzles.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just like to host people from interesting places (or even interesting people from boring places). All of the people I've met through couch surfing have been really cool. I love to cook, so I would be happy to make a meal for any hosts. I love language and learn as much as possible wherever I go.


I try to make myself available to host as often as possible, and hopefully I'll have a proper roof over my head soon to invite people to stay. Everyone who has stayed with me or hosted me has been really great, and also the other suffers I've met while traveling.
