About Me

CURRENT MISSION Have fun! meet new friends.

Absolutely thankful for the Couch Surfing community. What a wonderful group of people and many new friendships, and memories.

I started www.TeamUpCancer.org and have been speaking with legislators across the nation and sharing about young adult cancer needs. On the epic journey legislators passed in 4 new laws to help young adults dealing with cancer.


I love meeting new people and hearing stories. On November 23, 2014, I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, and now a amazing trip that will help others who struggled with cancer. As one would say, I am outliving it.


Love and accept people for who they yet are, and when possible impart some wisdom, and laughter.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just Do it!! I am not scared to do anything expect for getting physically hurt. Meaning I wont jump off a 2 story house unless it has a pool that I will land in.


I love couch surfers!!! It is great to enjoy new people and their adventures. I have had a band stay at my place to people from different countries. it is great to laugh, share food, and stories.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think if we take the time we can learn from everyone. Most people will teach us what to do, and some not so good people will teach us what not to do.
