About Me


Experience new cultures and explore new places


I have lived in Houston for 5 years. Before that I lived in North Dakota, Alaska, Indiana, California, and Ecuador.

I'm very spontaneous and am always up for a last minute trip or last minute plans.

I'm a mechanical engineer in Houston and my job requires me to travel (so that's great!). I am also a certified tennis instructor and used to be the head coach for two high school tennis teams (both boys and girls).


I think everyone has an interesting perspective on life and I always enjoy hearing what motivates people and what their priorities are in life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love hosting people in houston and showing them around. My experience with couchsurfing has been really great.
