About Me


Experience as much as possible. Take nothing for granted.


Sarah: Travel enthusiast, cook, research nerd, people lover, board game player, concert goer, dance party supporter, and lover of life.

Kyle: Seasoned traveler, Italian speaker, invasive species expert, free thinker, guitar player, wood worker, rock climber, motorcyclist, and a good ol' time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed and hosted. Would like to do much more of both. Kyle is new to this project, but has been an unofficial couchsurfer for years (slept on many-a-couch all over Europe). We also espouse the values of wanderlust, openness, freedom, acceptance, and exploration that make this project so special!


I've surfed in Raleigh, Asheville, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Livingston (near Bozeman), and Oakland. I can't wait to surf more places- it's been a total blast.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sarah: Traveled around France/Italy during the 2006 World Cup. Went on a life-changing trip to Peru. Swam in the Amazon River, snuck into Bolivia, visited an oasis at the bottom of a canyon, saw Macchu Pichu from the peak of Huaynu Picchu. Floated in the Dead Sea.

Kyle: Saw Mt. Everest. Trekked the Annapurnas. Bridge-jumped into The Rhine. Skied the Alps. Taught English in Italy for a year (outside Milan).

We also both went a killer 3-month road-trip, after which we decided to make Colorado our home. We've been here for nearly three years. We got married here last summer!
