About Me


To learn about myself, people and the world through travel.


I am pretty new to traveling and love it.
I am a kid at heart and love to laugh.
I take life seriously, but try not to take myself too seriously.
I love kids and have worked as a volunteer camp counselor for six years and last year I worked as one of the directors.
I am currently a college student double majoring in Liberal Studies and Spanish. I hope to teach English as a second language and/or Spanish as a foreign language.


I guess I haven´t really gone as far as trying to define my personal philosophy. Well, here goes...

I think life is a gift, a gift that can very easily be taken from you. It is meant to be lived. What a better way to live it than to travel and see this world.
I think that success is measured by happiness and happiness is very much in the eye of the beholder.
I am so lucky to have a good relationship with my family and equally lucky to have a handful of true friendships.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am very new to CS2 and am trying to see how it works. I am traveling now, but plan to pay the hospitality provided to me forward in the future.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am very open to all sorts of music.

I love movies that make me laugh, movies that make me cry and movies that make me think.

I am now learing to love reading. Books are my travel when I can´t leave home.
