About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To keep fellow travelers off the floor!!! And of course share a story or two...

My roommate and I both receive a lot of requests so we've made a calendar to keep them straight, please view it before sending us a request to save everyone time if the dates have already been taken. Booked & Confirmed means someone is already staying with us: http://upto.com/s/mT4O

ABOUT ME

I love CS so much that I've been featured on this blog: http://www.ohmidog.com/2010/06/19/couchsurfing-in-albuquerque/comment-page-1/#comment-14644

PHILOSOPHY
There are no random acts. We are all connected. You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind.

€œWhen people stop sacrificing for one another, they lose what keeps them human.

Be the change you wish to see in this world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I just host as many people as possible when I can. I am extremely passionate about CouchSurfing and have loved every experience gained from it thus far. In the future I hope I'll get to surf others couches but as I am working full time I am happy to host for now.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I love everything about couchsurfing! Meeting cool people and also sharing in local events my city offers has been life changing! It provides a great cultural exchange between one another and instanly bonds you with this passionate community.

Interests

Hmm, my interests would include: hiking, camping, swimming,and of course travelling!!I am a very open minded individual, and try to learn as much as I can wherever I go.

Music, Movies & Books

TV: The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, The Voice, The New Normal.

Movies: Pirate Radio, My Name is Khan, Who Killed the Electric Car, Harry Potter, When Turtles Fly, Dirty Dancing, Footloose.

Books: The Alchemist, Cinderella ate my Daughter, The Longest Way Home, The Glass Castle, Hunger Games, Sleeping Naked is Green.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

*Ate cuy in Ecuador
*Went into the Amazon Rainforest, and was promptly eaten alive by mosquitos!
*Hiked Mt. Sinai at 2AM
*Waded in the Red Sea
*Was the first person in my family to graduate with a Bachelors degree

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to help International travelers really get a sense of American culture/traditions...therefore I have a list of "must do's":

Camping
S'Mores
Sloppy Joes
Rootbear Floats
Baseball Games
Hot Dogs/Burgers
Beer (yes I know this isn't just American, I'm refering to specific American beers though)

You can expect that I will be introducing you to at least one of these things if you are from out of the country and I host you! So look forward to it!!
