About Me


work hard, play hard!


I'm trying to live the good life -- happy, healthy, plenty of of time outdoors, cooking and eating all day long, traveling near and far, reading myself to sleep, and dancing all night long.


work hard, play hard.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Met lots of cool surfers while living and working at Acadia National Park. We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about life and the world! Had a good first hosting experience. Can't wait to host and surf myself!
