About Me


On tour! Playing in the Carolinas and georgia during my break from school


I'm a musician by night, playing mostly accordion, but also a variety of instruments and a masters student studying elementary education by day. I don't sleep much.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been sadly inactive since getting back to the states (Spartanburg South Carolina leaves a lot to be desired), but back in Germany I hosted people, surfed a lot, and attended many local couch surfing events


Some of the awesomest people I've ever met were through couch surfing. Sometimes, i'd meet someone awesome, then find out they were through couch surfing! I've surfed on many a'peoples houses, and hosted many a'more people when i lived in Berlin
