About Me


Travel and meet and host interesting and independently minded people.


I am a city kid but I yearn for the country. I want to be knowledgeable and skilled in everything practical which means I have lots of work ahead of me. I want to continue to explore the world and learn about its customs, traditions, and people.


The decisions you make today affect seven generations into the future. Educate yourself and be conscious of the things you buy, use, and throw away because those yet to be born must live with the footprint you create.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
