About Me

Hi, please note that I only live in Tucson half of the week, usually Thursday through Sunday. Please take this into consideration when sending me a request so I know you've read my profile. Thanks!

I like to hike and run and bike. I'm a big nerd and tend to be interested in many things. I've spent a decent chunk of my life volunteering and working for social causes. I absolutely love to cook and worked as a baker for some years.

I'm from central Illinois but have lived in California, Guatemala, Panama as well as Tucson.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been on couchsurfing for many years and haven't always been an active user but currently find myself in a position to host people, which I think is a great way to give back to the community. Hopefully later I'll be able to benefit from the community in kind.


Anthropology, medicine, public health, stats and data, everything nerdy.

Cooking, baking, woodworking, everything DIY.

Cycling, ultimate frisbee, yoga, weightlifting, everything active.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share what I know about bread baking, hiking and camping advice around southern Arizona. I can prattle on endlessly about health and disease statistics, and I'm an eager student of acroyoga so could potentially share some basics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'll probably offer to cook something for you.
