About Me

So I moved to the states in September 2016. Before moving, I lived in Uganda and travelled all over East Africa. This is the farthest I’ve been though. In the United states, I have lived in Durham, NC , Battle Creek, MI, Philadelphia, PA and currently living in Birmingham, MI.

I miss traveling and I want to get back to it and meet people. As you can imagine, moving has been difficult and a culture shock. But I believe people and love are all that matter in this world. I want to apply this philosophy in my life ...and that’s why I’m on CS!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

People and love make the world worth living. I want to meet people, I want to host and show people around what I know. I'm also hoping to make traveling more possible for myslef and others by lessening the money required.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went skydiving for my 30th birthday! I experienced human flight for the first time. It was an amazing experience , specially trusting someone , letting go and actually enjoy flying! It was an exhilarating 2 mile high free fall and scenic parachute flight.
