About Me


Contently Wandering


I work on an urban farm. I love to read, play, and listen to music; I am terrible in dealing with anything technological; I love to camp, hike, drive, and sit outside; I hate to be inside 4 walls for too long. I love to learn, listen, analyze people, policies, and stories; I love to travel and to be at home; I've been accused of being "chill to a fault."


I travel not to check countries of my list or do all there is to do in a particular place. I travel to learn, listen, and grow as a person.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a mid-westerner at heart, but I'm currently living in New Mexico and am thoroughly enjoying it; a couple of years ago I spent some time traveling around, and I experienced my first Couch Surfing joys in various households in Oman and a couple in Ethiopia. I've experienced nothing but generousity and grace from my hosts!
