Meet amazing people around the world
I'm an adventurous, fun-loving thrill seeker. I love traveling, experiencing new things, and meeting new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I offered my couch in Ames, Iowa for over a year but, unfortunately nobody really travels around Iowa... I don't blame them. After moving to Oakland, CA I've been way more involved. With the help of some locals, I started CouchCrash SF, San Francisco's biggest annual CS event. I've also hosted lots of travelers and organized many smaller CS events in the Bay Area.
I've couch surfed with many different hosts and I've had nothing but wonderful experiences. I also love the CS meetups, especially in big cities. This site is an amazing tool that allows you to meet fun, like-minded people and perhaps even learn and share new skills.
World travelling, rock climbing, cycling, scuba diving, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, camping, experiencing new things.
