About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Do all the things!

ABOUT ME

Hi everyone!
I am a 27 year old Visual Designer from Arizona. I've lived in a number of places all over the west coast and tend to jump to a new one every 2-3 years. After 9 years of saving and dreaming, I am finally running amok around Europe with my best friend and I can't be more excited!

I am an energetic, friendly, and open person and I absolutely love couchsurfing, meeting new people, traveling, and going on adventures! I am always up to learn and try something new. Whether it's eating chicken feet for the first time or jumping off a 300 foot cliff to celebrate a holiday with new friends, I'm always down.

New life goal: spend each birthday in a different country!
- 26th: Korea
- 27th: Mexico
- 28th: ________ Any suggestions?

PHILOSOPHY

- Play is the highest form of research.
- When you travel, learn about the culture and avoid the touristy things. Unless it's the Great Wall of China, that shits awesome!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed all over the US and Canada thus far, hosted, and I was a very active member of the local Portland CS group as well as the Bay Area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Absolutely amazing! Every single person that I've met through couchsurfing has been a delight! Everyone is so nice, friendly, open, honest, outgoing, fun, etc. Some of the nicest people I've ever met.

Interests

Running, biking, hiking, rock climbing, trampoline dodgeball, high ropes, dancing, art, visual design, illustration, photography, cooking, hanging out with friends, trying new things, meeting new people, traveling, walking in parks, crossing bridges, looking at buildings, yoga, jumping off things, photo bombing, high fives, and bridges on bridges.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the best trips that I've had was to Costa Rica. There were so many outrageous and fun activities to participate in such as jumping off 100 foot trees, climbing and repelling off of waterfalls, and white water rafting. The people were all so friendly and the culture and landscape was beautiful.

That and my 4 month trip around the US, Canada, and Mexico:
4 months, 1 car, 16,000 miles, 32 states, 3 countries, infinite joy, experiences, and great people!

Jumping off the Monkey Face on 4th of July at Smith Rock.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn about the lives and cultures of people in other countries and around the US. Languages, cultures, and different experiences fascinate me. So a new goal of mine is to move abroad for at least a year to learn Spanish.

What I Can Share With Hosts

My energy, humor, joy of life, beer, and dancing! Always down to dance and run amok!
