Live, learn, teach
I like spending time with friends, but also just as happy spending time alone or with my dogs. One of my dreams in life is to go volunteer in Africa and work with kids and animals. I can't think of anything more rewarding and life fulfilling other then to help people that are less fortunate in life.
I love hiking and exploring the wilderness. I feel most happy when I am out in nature. I would love to show you some of the beautiful places around the Seattle area.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Currently offering a place for couch surfers to stay during there visit to the Seattle area.
The reason I chose to join couch surfing was because I thought it would be a great way to build a network of friends from different parts of the world, to learn about different cultures and how people live in different countries, and one day when I am able to travel the world, I would have somewhere to sleep and someone to show me around the place they call home.
Hiking, camping, rock climbing, water rafting, horseback riding, scuba diving, to name a few.
- eating out
- outdoor activities
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Electronic, blues, jazz, funk, rock, trance, progressive house. Kind of all depends on my mood.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Visited Maui for 14 days and among all the great things I did in Maui, I would say my favorite was when we went scuba diving and got to see all the amazing sea life.
I recently just got back from Florida. I visited every major theme park in both Orlando and Tampa. Was a great trip, and seeing alligators in there natural surroundings was really cool.
Teach, Learn, Share
My love for the great outdoors and volunteering:
The great outdoors has given me a perspective on beauty and a thirst for adventure. I know first hand the importance of respecting, appreciating and caring for our natural resources. I like the physical exercise that the outdoors offer, as well as experiencing all of it's natural surroundings. Though there may be some discomfort along the way, it is often part of the pleasure too. Bottom line, being outdoors increases my gratitude for life.
Volunteering teaches me something new about people, about cooperation, about compassion, and about myself. Volunteering reminds me that we are all in this together and we need to remember to support each other.
There is so much life has to offer if we remember to look beyond ourselves.
