About Me

I'm in my late 20s, and my early 20s were packed with *several* adventures of a lifetime. :)

I'm from Minnesota, lived in Austria for a year, had a career in the San Francisco Bay Area for 3 years, and then moved back home to become a neuroscientist. I now work in a research lab at the University of Minnesota, and I work for the College of Biological Sciences as a science writer. Life is exciting.

I have major ambitions and big dreams. I cherish every moment and pour my all into everything I do. I would love to meet you and share a few moments together. That's what life is all about. :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I first started couchsurfing when I was a study abroad student in Vienna, and I can safely say that my experiences on this site changed the way I interact with the world. I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything.

I believe that human connections are the most important thing we have, and it's a beautiful thing that we can find them with strangers in foreign countries or distant states. I love what the people in this community have given me, and I have always tried to pay it forward.

Interests

Chai tea and dark chocolate. Neuroscience. Writing. Rock climbing. Spontaneous adventures. Figuring people out. Doing the right thing.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I bicycled from Minneapolis, MN to Bellingham, WA and then down the coast to San Francisco, CA with my friend Liz. It was crazy times, and one of the most profoundly thrilling adventures I've been lucky enough to take part in.
