About Me


I'm from Colorado, but I've lived all over in the past 6 years. I love riding my bike, playing pick-up soccer and frisbee, painting, cooking and learning new languages. Other hobbies include hitchhiking, moving somewhere just because, ending up in absurd situations, and trying to dance (not necessarily in that order). I've found multiple ways to support myself while moving around, and sometime very soon I hope to find a job that I both enjoy and believe in.


"A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars, it's where the rich use public transportation."
-Mayor of Bogota
Yes that's a little specific to capture my entire life philosophy... but I do love me some public transportation...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to share the love. Also, you people know where DELICIOUS food is at.


I hosted at my apartment in DC and I've surfed in San Francisco, Seattle, North Carolina, Dakar, Accra and all over Europe.
