About Me


Trying to get lost while finding my way


I studied business Finance and Economics, got a job and hated it. Realizing that I didn't want to join the rest of the US in an unhappy "but it pays good" job I quit. In February of 2012 I packed up my life and moved to South Korea to teach English, which proved to be one of the best decisions I could have made. I spent two amazing years teaching in a small town in central Korea and have since been lucky to explore much of what Asia has to offer.

I'm currently back in my hometown but only long enough to figure out where my next adventure will take me. I'm itching to leave, having a taste of travel has only given me the desire for me. I believe that through interacting in different cultures, meeting different people and exploring the world you learn more about yourself but also that people across countries are the same.


I don't want to look back in 20, 30 or 40 years and talk about the things I wish I had done.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


So far only surfing but hope to host as well


Surfing has introduced me to some awesome people and provided me with unique, unforgettable travel experiences. I have yet to host but when I set up some more solid foundations would love to do so.


Traveling, Eating, Yoga, Reading, Learning and exploring...pretty much anything outdoors but only if the temperature is above 50 (not a fan of the winter!)

Music, Movies & Books

Too hard to choose! Although I enjoy a wide range and am always open to new suggestions!

Currently wrapped up in too many Kdramas :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Riding the ferry to Manly beach in Australia while riding past the Sydney Opera house and harbor bridge - breathtaking views. Also while in Australia I was blown away by the breathtaking views during a sunrise while sailing the Whitsunday islands.
