I want to crash on your couch, wherever that may be.
I'd like to swim in every ocean and touch every beautiful waterfall. Relax on every coast and gaze at every wave.
There's nothing better than watching a sunset in Northern Arizona, then staying outside to see the incredible stars. The southwest is my home. If you're headed there I have more than a few recommendations for must-see sights and great beer.
If I could, I would drop everything and go to Central America, South America and Africa.
A day is better spent in a hammock among the trees or in an ocean under the sun.
Any advice on where I should go next?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm on couchsurfing because I believe that any experience is made better when you chat with someone new.
Traveling, especially to somewhere new!
Learning about other countries and cultural practices
Being near, in or on water
The science of addiction
Serving underserved populations
People watching- I think it's the best way to get to know a place
- social work

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
How can I chose just one? I'll do a top three instead (no particular order). 1- Rafting in the Colorado River. 2- Scalloping in the Gulf of Mexico. 3. Dedicating my life to fighting the social injustices present in the U.S.
These things are all domestic. I need to do something amazing internationally! Ideas?
Teach, Learn, Share
I would really like to learn how to rock climb and surf.
And I'd like to learn how to cook your favorite dish.
I'm always down for a yoga lesson. I took a class and practice every once in a while, but my form is not that great.
I can teach the worst cook how to make something tasty.
Or I can make something myself and share it with you!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I would love to cook for you! I can clean, too. I can offer stories of my adventures, though they are sparse. Provide advice for a visit to the southwest and an open ear for all of your happiness and woes (what can I say? I'm a social worker by trade).
