About Me


To create and advocate


Dave + me + baby makes 3! We've officially gone from couple to family.

We're opposites. Dave's quiet and Debbi is chatty. Dave is studious and Debbi procrastinates. Dave is nerdy and Debbi is also nerdy.

Jasper is, well, a baby. Hard to tell exactly what he is like. Stubborn at times and can be hard to please. But he really can turn on the charm and melt your heart.


At first they told me I should travel before I got married because then you need to settle down. Now they tell me that I need to travel before I have kids and settle down....who needs to settle down?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We mostly host but we're going to try and surf this summer.


I have never met so many like-minded people, then when I've met couchsurfers. I can't count the number of times I have thought, "wow, it feels like I've known this person forever."


Pushing myself to learn more and do more.
