About Me


I'm an American living in New Zealand for a year for the experience. Finding my way and hanging out with dolphins.


Wild, smart, free.

I want to travel A LOT more!

Here is my blog: http://seductionbywords.tumblr.com/


I want to feel every feeling there is to be felt and positively spark as many lives as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Sharing magic.


I have surfed many couches but none through this site yet.


water, music, swimming, adventures, playgrounds, trees, candy, surfing, hiking, cheap thrills.

Music, Movies & Books

In a constant flux of awesome.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've held a butterfly, surfed Hawaii, NZ, CR, SA, and INDO. hiking in rainforests, cuddled with gibbons, wrestled gators, taken tiger cubs for walks, open-mics under the stars and with the fireflies, parties in the woods, kayakin' with the loons, swimmin' with dolphins, kisses from seals, swimmin' in waterfalls, chilling in waterfall caves water drippin' on my face, ziplining through the cloud forest, swim in sea turtle filled currents in paradise, seeing rainbows at sunrise on sacred volcano mountains. I want more. There's much more!

I also eat every sunset I see for dinner. Its a light meal =)
