About Me


to save my inner child from the rising tide of reality.


I am 29 year old American looking to explore and learn all that I can from the world. I have been in the UK doing some market research, and can feel the travel bug nipping at me again. I've learned a lot from my last go round and am looking to make the most of my time in Europe.


I believe life is what you make of it. Not just what you do or achieve but how you perceive it. Happiness is the goal of any successful life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have been traveling constant since I learned about CS. When I have my place I am excited at the prospect of hosting my own surfers.


I have been hosted a total of four times in Brugge, Brussels, Dresden, and Heidelberg. Each experience was unique and great. They all gave me a view of the cities that I would have never had otherwise.


I love American handcrafted Beers, philosophy, people, travel, food. I will eat almost anything you set in front of me.
