About Me


Live life life to the step at a time


I am a kind, fun loving, and compassionate person who is looking to grow through my connections with others around the world. I hope I can also have a positive impact on people I come across from this couch surfing project and life in general.


Do what you love, focus on what you love about it, accept your negative thoughts for what they are, and move toward your goals in the process.

Its about the journey not the destination (cliche but true).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I am looking for a place to live so I cannot provide anyone a place to stay at this time. As I experience the kinds of people this website attracts through my travels, I am hoping to open up my living space to others


Still waiting for my first experience


Sports, traveling, hiking, conversations and laughs with good people, spiritual activities such as meditation, yoga, and qi gong, reading, watching movies,and tv.
