About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm trying to see the world and enjoy meeting new friends

ABOUT ME

I've traveled internationally with my family since I was tiny, and I've loved traveling on my own and meeting new and interesting people. I've been cursed with broad interests and not enough time in life, but I love talking with and learning from other people. Outdoor sports and philosophical conversations are some of my favorite things, just plain fun is up there too.

PHILOSOPHY

Never lose wonder.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Love to surf and host, though I've been moving around a lot till this year, so I haven't gotten to host too many folks in my hometown yet. But I love showing people around. I'm always looking for adventure buddies too, so let me know if you're in the area and want to do something. I work from home, so my schedule is pretty flexible.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've done a lot of unofficial couch-surfing while traveling, so I'm thrilled to see that somebody is organizing it.
