About Me


To make it count!


I just gave up my job on July 1, 2014 and hope to spend at least the next year traveling the world and getting in as much climbing as possible. My new address is my car license plate and I can't be more excited! I'm not spending much time planing out an itinerary as I prefer more spontaneous adventures and feel you miss out on opportunities if you have to follow specific plans.

So obviously climbing and travel are very important to me. I also am really into yoga and try to practice every day. I've been a vegan for about 7 years.


Strive for my happiness and well being....never do things because it's the easier option or what friends/family/society says should happen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just getting started. Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to meet amazing people in my journey around the world.


Nothing yet with CS. All of my previous experience comes from things happening spontaneously during my travels.


Rock climbing, veganism, volunteering, yoga, recycling, water harvesting, music (especially live), traveling, books, languages, art (creating/participating/viewing/printmaking/photography/sculpture), friends and family, singing, bagpipes, storytelling, meeting new people, food (vegan/raw), anything outdoors (climbing/hiking/kayaking/rafting/camping, etc.), animals and their welfare, dancing, beer, movies...always trying to find new interests.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A few years ago I went to Nagano with 10 strangers (long story) and was snowed in the cabin over New Year's Eve. It was one of the most memorable starts to a new year that I've ever had....and even better I've made some life long friends!

I can teach you about climbing or maybe make a vegan meal with you.
