Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to help everyone enjoy the city that I love so much! I don't have a couch available right now, so I will just be showing people around town for the time being.


I surfed Hannah Boyle's couch in Nashville, TN a few months ago. She was an old friend, so we had a great time checking out some local music and catching up. She is a very active CS Host in Nashville, and she really got me excited about becoming a part of the CS community myself.
