About Me


To see as much of the world as possible.


I am an independent person who enjoys getting to know new people and experiencing new things. I have a need to travel and see all different places around the world. In traveling, I enjoy meeting local people and getting a more authentic feel for what a place in like.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I am looking to surf, but in the future I hope to return the favor and host.


I surfed a couch in Vienna for Christmas and had a great time! I hope my future couchsurfing experiences are as fantastic.


I spend my time reading, watching movies, swimming. I really enjoy teaching and learning, especially languages. I wish I could spend more time traveling. And I also love taking pictures.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a mediocre baker and am really good at math (not that anyone particularly wants to learn math.) I am also working on improving my French.
