About Me

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, and now Tucson.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've used CS to meet many cool people in many cool places. I've never been able to host, but hopefully my new roommates will be into the idea!


Anthropology, medicine, public health, stats and data.

Cooking, baking, DIY everything.

Cycling, ultimate frisbee, bodyweight fitness.

Music, Movies & Books

Rock n' Bach

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Do you like: Eating endangered species? Drinking corn liquor with rainforest shamans? Sleeping in giant dugout canoes? Apply Now! www.peacecorps.gov

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach bread baking skills, epidemiology, Spanish, thoughts on Latin American immigration, and how to wear a loincloth.

Also as someone who successfully lost over 50 lbs I can share lots of information on healthy living strategies. The motivation you'll have to find elsewhere.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Please let me cook for you.

Countries I've Visited

Japan, Mexico

Countries I've Lived In

Guatemala, Panama, United States
