About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To experience and learn about other cultures, languages and people.

ABOUT ME

*UPDATE*: I've been away from couch surfing for months due to personal issues and the fact that I've been moving. I'm once again active on this site but I apologize to all those who I did not respond to, I just couldn't dedicate enough time or effort to hosting due to unforeseen circumstances.

I am like most people on this site! I am a very fun loving person who has a passion for all things international. Football (aka soccer), languages and meeting new people is my life. I can be very laid back but I do enjoy being on the go. I am a traveler at heart who loves the outdoors. I am extremely spontaneous, bubbly, often very happy and outgoing. There is no reason to live your life sad. Cooking is fun, bars are cool and new experiences? They are what make life memorable.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

PHILOSOPHY

My whole goal is to feel like I am living my life to the fullest. Personal Philosophy: Live all over the world. While your doing it, live well, love much and laugh often. Oh, and regret nothing.

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Life isn't about the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.

You don't stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didnâ

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I AM BACK! I have been Couchsurfing and hosting for around 3.5 years now. I have been away from the site as I've been moving and working too much to host. I'm able to host again and would love to help some travelers out with a nice couch to sleep on!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Im always suprised by how many incredible people I meet through Couchsurfing.

I've hosted people and been hosted as well and it has been a blast!

Interests

SPORTS! I am a huge fan of almost every major sport minus golf. People, cultures, music, religion, languages, photography, the outdoors, cooking, dancing, traveling, making new friends, kayaking

My current obsession is biking, rock climbing and kayaking. A friend was kind enough to take me here in Germany and I fell in love with it!

Music, Movies & Books

I have an eclectic style. However, I love dancing so techno, salsa, dubstep, trance, reggeton, indie. American, Brazilian, Norwegian, Russian, Italian, German, Danish, Indian...I like it all. My ipod is ALWAYS on me. I love music and movies.

Movies: Comedy and Action are awesome. I get scared easily so scary movies are only good sometimes. Inception, The Hangover and RED are some of my favorite s

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spent two weeks in the Amazon Rainforest and had the trip of a lifetime. I will never forget it!

Worked in an orphange in Brazil and with cancer patients back in the United States. Both were very humbling and life changing experiences for me.

I helped run many youth camps back in the United States. I did around 5 or 6 per year and had a lot of fun. Kids can be the best teachers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I hope to educate people on both American and Brazilian culture and learn as much as possible from people I surf with or host!

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United States

Countries I've Lived In
