About Me


To expand my world view! Whenever I travel I see how much more there is to life and all my petty problems melt away.

Now that the world's opening up I'm eager to travel again after a year being cooped up. I haven't got the vaccine yet because of one of my lines of work but also because of my job i've been very careful and get tested fequently.


I'm short, I talk fast, I love learning, I'll try anything once (especially food) and mixing drinks is a hobby of mine


Anywhere I lay my head, I'm going to call my home- Tom Waits

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I always tell my friends that Couchsurfing is more then a free place to crash. The insight you get by staying with locals and being able to talk to another adventurous soul is priceless.

I love learning about less touristy gems in any country. I love deep, thoughtful conversations with strangers. I love meeting new people who can introduce me to new experiences. And of course I love getting a drink with good company. I love a lot of things :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Anywhere I've been I always manage to find shining examples of the best humans I could hope to know.

Teach, Learn, Share

i know alot about cocktails and the little facts about them. I think a lot about the future of the human race. I'm pretty sure I could take on a wolf in a fight. I know a lot of random trivia and facts.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you drink Im going to try a new thing this year where I make my host cocktails based on some of their favorite ingredients or liquor. It's still an idea that I'm tossing around though

Otherwise I'm pretty open to experiencing my host's idea of fun if they're not busy. I'm pretty good on my own too so no problem if so. I do a lot of research on the places I go.
