About Me


Live to see another beautiful place


I am usually the last person to go home, the first one to suggest an adventure and always open to a new experience and opportunities. I see life as a both a party and an grand experience to learn and grow. By in large, I like to gain knowledge through people and new places but I've been known to be a book worm as well. I'm friendly and outgoing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to Couch Surfing. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and exploring new places.


I love the outdoors. My favorite outdoor activities are backpacking, swimming, boogie boarding, beach bumming and people watching. If I'm inside, I like to dance, read and watch the rain.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1) Earlier this month I hiked the Inca trail (four days and three nights). The entire trip left me inspired and humbled. However, the most powerful moment was watching the full moon, on a clear night, rise over the Andean mountains.
2) I also had a life changing experience hiking the John Muir Trail a few years back. The Sierras are no joke. We hiked 247 miles, over 11 passes and ended on the top of Mt. Whitney.
3) My absolute favorite moments are finding a good beer and dance partner for the night.
