About Me


***Jan/Feb 2018 connemarra, co Galway, Ireland!***

Embrace my freedom and enjoy this beautiful earth


I'm a photographer and a registered nurse. I love camping and anything that inspires me. Life is short, my friends.

Things I love:
Old Cameras
Animals - all kinds
acoustic music/singing
the smell of fall
the color of fall
my jeep


I could die tomorrow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed and hosted.


Couch surfed with many amazing people and tent camped on a solo road trip across the country for a few months a few years ago and it was a lovely first experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can tell you what all those buttons mean on your camera :)

Learn: I'd like to learn to tie fancy knots and roll a kayak and shoot a bow and play new mandolin songs

Share: I have had a very amazing time so far on this earth and actively practice acts of gratitude at every opportunity. In my field of work I see many miracles and many tragic endings. It is easy to get lost in surviving. I try just trying to get a slice of this crazy life!

Countries I’ve Visited
