About Me


To see the world.


I love to eat, drink, laugh and hear stories. I can be a bit shy at first but I always warm up in the end. I'm laid back and I sometimes have a child's curiosity. I think we are all connected. I don't follow any religions but I have a strong desire to learn of them.

E aí galera!

To aqui no Brasil até 2015 pra conhecer a pais. Já fui para Salvador e agora to em São Paulo até fim de Abril. No mês que vem, maio, vou pro rio.

Sou dos estados unidos e to aprendendo português.

Quero conhecer pessoas legais pra conhecer a cidade verdadeira. Então se vcs tem dicas ou sabem lugares legais não bem conhecidos, me conta. Gosto de explorar e achar coisas novas.


Don't force it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by hanging out with people and sharing stories and ideas. A good meal, laugh and sometimes even an argument can cement a lifelong friendship.


I've never 'surfed' on someone's couch but I've met some really nice folks through the couchsurfing gatherings.


Music; all types, working with my hands, singing(I'm pretty poor at it), reading, eating interesting dishes, conversing with people and hearing their stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've zip lined in Tagatay, PI. I've gone jet skiing in the Bahamas. Swam in the clear waters of cancun. Eaten a great breakfast in Tokyo.

Teach, Learn, Share

Being from Texas, I'm decent on the barbecue. The secret is to control the fire.

I'm learning Brazilian Portuguese. It's a beautiful language and so excited about being able to converse with Brazilian natives.
