About Me

I'm brand new to Couch Surfing, but I promise I'm not a murderous weirdo.

I live and work on an organic farm in KY and make bagels part time for money. I love food. Growing it, cooking it, eating it, sharing it. I'm passionate about community building. I doodle, write, and read cook books in my spare time

I did a fair bit of traveling abroad last year, but now it's time to explore a bit in the US. I'm making my way to Homer, AK to visit a friend and stopping in Chicago and Seattle along the way. I'd love to get to know the REAL version of each of these cities through the folks that live there. I care a great deal about natural spaces, sustainability, art museums, and chill brewery/ bar situations.

I come from a poor small town thirty minutes north of Knoxville, TN, and I'm really thankful to have friends from traveling spread all over the world. At home, when I'm not cooking or working, I do a lot of hiking, yoga, and traveling around to visit friends.

Although it hasn't been updated in several months, you can check out what I've been up to in my travels on my blog beyond12oaks.wordpress.com
