Hiking my way to the top...
I am a Research Technician for a non-proft that assists small-holder farmers in developing nations in Limpopo, South Africa. I just recieved my M.S. in Soil Science from North Carolina State Uni. Before that, I dabled in geology, film production, smoothie-making, and other strategies for being homeless.
I live my life to glorify God, mainly by loving and living in harmony with people and creation.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I go to local CS parties, dinners, and barhops as often as possible to connect in my community and see what other people are doing with life and where they've been.
I've mostly surfed in Mexico, and every time it has been surprising how similar we are as people of very different nations.
I love science fiction. I enjoy writing and thinking. Exploring is in my blood and takes the form of hiking, road trips, and riding public transit.
