About Me


To indulge in what life has to offer


I spent the last year and a half absorbing cultures and making new friends from Australia, to Thailand, China, Japan, Egypt and Europe. I couldn't have done it without the help of couch surfing. I hope to repay the couch surfing karma soon :)


A believer in positive thinking gets me where I need to go, while striving to give thanks for where I am.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been away from home for over a year! and CS has been the best part of it every time.


it's been great :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one... isnt enough.

I've been skydiving for my 25th birthday, spent two weeks exploring most of Ireland, listened to Beethoven's 9th Symphony at the Sydney Opera House that brought me to tears, climbed Glaciers in NZ, visited the Studio Ghibli Museum, and slept on a Felucca on the Nile!

I've also skinny dipped in the Indian Ocean, swam with a Whale Shark and Manta Rays in The Ningaloo Reef, scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef, bungee jumped off the Nevis (440+ feet) in New Zealand, walked a small section of The Great Wall of China, visited Japan during Hanami, and climbed around Karijini National Park until my legs were jello :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I know quite a bit about dental. I love to bake am an interested in vegan baking the most. I also practice photography and could use some help with technique!
