Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Tyler’s full profile.
Ever since the start of my undergraduate degree, I developed a passion (or more so, obsession) with traveling. I studied orchestral performance and education, so I was fortunate enough to have many opportunities to travel abroad via "work" (though it was less work and more adventuring). Before becoming a teacher I worked as a server / bartender, as well as a lifeguard and "head of the hall" at my University. My passion is now reaching the goal of leaving the world a little bit better than before I got here, so now I travel around for teaching and volunteer purposes.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
What a crazy time to be traveling during! New places are wonderful to visit, but new perspectives shared from others are even more memorable and worthwhile. What better way to gain said perspectives than CS!? (*serious regret from not having Couchsurfed until now; better late than never I suppose)!
CS also allows me to save money (of which is quite important being on a "volunteer" salary and all )
- performing arts
- scuba diving
- language exchange
- life stories
- digital nomad
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Oof, this is difficult. Chase Holfelder, Aurora, Natewantstobattle, Caleb Hyles, Jonathan Young, PATD!, and Grace Vanderwaal currently dominate my playlist!
Movies: Anything Disney (I can sing Moana / Frozen for days). MCU comes in a close second.
Books: Mostly historical or travel records. I love finding old journals of those who went on expeditions centuries ago! I also am very into distillery, winery, and brewery reads.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
For my Senior recital (the pinnacle of one's undergraduate degree), I performed (percussion) alongside the lead of Broadway's STOMP!
Teach, Learn, Share
A truly successful journey is measured by the knowledge and wisdom one gains along the traveled path.
I am a classical musician by trade, so I would be happy to share music theory and instrumental lessons (percussion, conducting, piano)! I am also an English teacher, so I'd be happy to accommodate anyone who is ever in need of language assistance.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I hope to share memorable conversations. Exchanging perspectives, deep conversations, drinking good wine, and perhaps even scheduling hikes together if we become friends! I’d also love to cook together! If you have a play instruments, let’s jam! (I play piano and percussion).
Also, if you are interested in content creating (Instagram, YouTube, or just for yourself), we can take my drone with us on whatever adventure we find ourselves on for an awesome video / photography session!
