About Me


Spreading inspiration, education, peace, love, & light.


I strive to be passionate, friendly, open, and loving. I graduated from ASU with a BS in Sustainability a few years ago, so I'm really passionate about living lightly on the Earth & being self-sufficient. I like to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have a love for most things, big & small. Organic & local food & farms are my jam. I spend most of my time doing yoga, teaching yoga, biking, traveling, reading, writing, making food, rock climbing, chilling with friends, art & crafting, listening to music, hiking, outdoors, partying, relaxing, laughing, loving, playing, being.

I get itchy feet often. I like to play, especially outside, even if its just a day trip. Adventuring is what keeps me breathing. I like to have a home base, and it looks like Portland is my new one right now. I am very happy to be in a creative, inspiring, friendly, and supportive environment and am just trying to figure out my journey on this crazy place we live on called Earth.


Live life to YOUR fullest. Love everyone and everything. Peace is more productive than violence. Sharing is caring. Play more than you work.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to host while at home, attend CS events, and prefer to surf while traveling! I've hosted quite a bit the past 2 years while living in Portland, but lived in a community house with a bunch of CS members, so we made a house profile. To check out those references, you can go here:

I no longer live there... I have been traveling and living out of my van since August 2014! :D

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is pretty awesome. I listen to it, love watching it be performed, and enjoy partaking in the occasional jam sesh, although I don't really know how to play any instruments. I like to sing and whistle randomly, hope you're okay with that. ;)

Movies & books are usually my tools for learning. I don't indulge nearly as often as I would like.
