About Me

(Well I'm finally going to travel myself with CouchSurfing for the first time!)

Welcome to Knoxville! I enjoy meeting new people and having new experiences. I live in downtown Knoxville.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Met a cool French guy a while back who was traveling across the USA using this site, and gave him a ride from Knoxville to Crossville. That's how I found the site.


I enjoy computers, reading, playing ultimate frisbee, working out, hiking, watching the Vols, and hanging out with friends and family!
