About Me


My mission is to create universal love and compassion by being unconditionally loving and compassionate toward myself and all beings.


I'd like to think I'm a pretty laid back person. I like people. I enjoy human connection.


We all are one. Compassion toward myself and all beings. I lean toward Buddhism.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing, community events.


Stayed with a couple in Michigan for a couple days, and hosted 7 "kids" (in their 20s) for 2 weeks. Also I've been to a couple of local community events.


Yoga, reading, listening to music, going for walks with friends.
