About Me


traveling around the country in search for my next home. i believe that heaven opens up onto earth, and i want to find another one to call hom.


I am honest, curious, and hunting for a place to call home. I lived and worked in Yosemite National Park for the last seven years. During that time I became an avid outdoorsy person. I love to climb, hike, swim, ride my bike, star gaze, camp and cook. I fulfilled my mission there and am ready for my next chapter. I am looking for a place that has clean water, wholesome people, oodles of outdoor activities, good food and abundant music. My journey is going to last the next two months.
I love meeting new people and learning new things. As well as sharing all the knowledge and experience with others too.


So many of my philosophies are about making things better. be the change you wish to see. look forward and ask why not, don't look back and ask why? love will conquer all. the serenity prayer. improving and learning as much as you can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This is the first time I have used this community service. My intention is to return the service once i've found a place to call home.


The couchsurfing I've done so far is on my friends couches. In thanks I usually make dinner.


music, art, hiking, climbing, biking, watching some tv, movies, facebooking, talking, listening, eating and cooking, dancing, shopping, driving, dreaming and sleeping, relationships-being in them and not, talking about them and listening to others' stories.
