About Me


to be uncomfortable.


recently married, and a lover of new perspectives, nature, greenness, cilantro, yoga and internal reflection. provably won't do much traveling for a while, but working on my career and family at this point.


who will be if i am not for me? and if not now, when?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was able to travel and take an epic trip with my bear friend in the summer of 2011 through Europe. from this, I developed a new level of respect both for myself and things that are different. I am so fortunate to have built such amazing memories on the foundations of couch surfing and have raved about my experiences since that time.

currently, i am not taking surfers as i am focusing now on my career and family and building my life here. If you are new to the area or a traveler- if nothing else, please call me for coffee or an adult beverage. Don't be a stranger.


i am absolutely intrigued by the various ways that strangers can demonstrate kindness. this whole experience is about trusting of humanity, and karma.

i hope i can give back the same way that kindness was given to me :)


soccer, bad tv shows, yoga, being useful.
