About Me


Never stop learning


I am a 25 year old who fell in love with traveling and don't plan on stopping until I am out of money, if then. I love learning new things and as a history student love learning about the history of each place I travel to. I am easy going and down for pretty much anything! I currently teach english in Medellin and am loving my new home!


Chase your passions whenever possible and when you realize you aren't doing so, ask yourself why not and figure out how to change it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love sharing my city and learning about others so even if I can't host, I'm always down for a coffee or beer so don't hesitate to ask. I'm a part-time bar/club reviewer so I can show you some cool places!


Simply amazing. Always love random acts of kindness


Live life love repeat. Sports, music, friends, family, movies...The usual I suppose. Been experimenting a lot lately with cooking, writing, and photography; all things that I think aid a traveler's journey.

Music, Movies, and Books

Deep house and Minimal. My favorite authors are Garcia Marquez, Vonnegut, Hemingway.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing single thing I have seen would be the northern lights in Tromsø, Norway. To top it off, the next morning I got to drive my own dogsled!

Cumulatively, by far the most amazing thing I've done is made friends from Brazil to Ghana and Norway to Sydney with many other countries in between. I'm hoping to add to that list through Couchsurfing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I personally believe that everyone is a teacher and that everyone is a student. That is to say that everyone is an expert in their own right in some field and everyone has improvements they can make. Traveling allows me to be exposed to the most types of people possible and let's me see the world from their perspectives, if only for a beer, an evening, or a weekend.
