About Me


To live life with compassion and intention


I am currently studying teaching English as a second language in hopes of meeting and possibly empowering people from all over the globe. I am a lover of art, coffee, and people, I love people, and I want to meet you and share a cuppa'joe.

I studied and taught in China, South Korea, and Cambodia. Bits of my heart remains there.


I believe that we should all follow our bliss, even if it is illogical, especially if it is illogical.

Treat strangers with dignity, have compassion for yourself and others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy picking up a paint brush or nail gun with the local scene shop at the theatre. Working with immigrants at Adult Basic Education Centers and meeting people on the train.


I have never couch surfed,one of my missions in life is to try it.


Painting, comics, general making of things. Biking, hiking and enjoying the beauty of Minnesota in all her seasons. Meandering with a good soundtrack and company.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went bicycling through a rice paddy village with my friend Damon in LaoDing, China. He went all over the village asking his neighbors for a bike. He wheeled a broken down mountain bike and took a broken child's bike for himself. We passed bamboo, water buffalo and climbed lychee trees.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn how to make anyone smile.

In my expirence being humble and kind gets you to better understand the world when you are looking up at it and not down.
