About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore world culture.

ABOUT ME

Easy going, sometimes shy, often nerdy, 20-something year old with a desire to learn and experience everything possible. I am very passionate about music, please share!

I'm currently a student, finally have the time and money to start exploring the world. I've had the opportunity to travel to France a few times to visit family. Other than that I've only been to our southern neighbor, Mexico. I'm looking forward to branching out all around the globe. Update: I made it successfully to Peru and just outside of France to Belgium and Italy. My friend was hospitalized soon after arriving in Peru, so unfortunately my stay there was cut short. I look forward to going back. I really loved being there and just walking around the streets by myself.

I'm very interested in art and music. I love all kinds of music and am constantly searching for styles I have not heard before. For a time I was a music major planning on focusing on composition. I play anything that I can get my hands on but mostly guitar and drums. I love to see/hear other people's creations.

In terms of books I'm a big fan of William S. Burroughs and Vladimir Nabokov. Of course my actual taste is much wider than just that. I hope to use my travels as a springboard to hopefully write something of my own one day. I recently read World According to Garp by John Irving and LOVED it, I can't wait to read more of his work.

Please contact me to discuss whatever you like! I look forward to meeting people from all around the world.

PHILOSOPHY

I just go day to day. As of right now I want to learn and experience everything. I would like to meet as many new people as possible.

I try to treat others as I wish to be treated and always show others I meet respect. I see myself as a part of the world and not just an individual and wish to positively affect it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As of now I'm just starting out, looking to meet people on my travels this summer. As soon as I have a place that I can offer I would love to start hosting other travelers to stay. I think it's a wonderful project and look forward to helping as much as I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have spent time on friend's couches when traveling to nearby cities. I have yet to meet someone completely new to stay but look forward to the experience.

I have always welcomed friends and friends of friends to my home when I had a place which I could offer as my own.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am in school for physics, that and mathematics I would be happy to help in.
I have also read many books on the occult which I love to discuss and debate.
