About Me


My goal is to see as many places and make as many new acquaintances and friends around the world as possible


I enjoy learning and discovering interesting people, places and things. I find everyone's personal stories fascinating to hear. Grew up in Chicago area and had many varied occupational experiences. I'm currently looking to learn Spanish, Italian and French!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Good to be able to connect with travelers in this way which I find typically are the nicest, friendliest and personable people you could meet.


Haven't surfed a couch yet other than staying with some I have hosted! I have had the pleasure of hosting people who I now regard as friends which is very cool.


Traveling is one my most favorite things to do; but I've yet to travel to Asia and the middle east Turkey being the exception. I enjoy learning languages, sports, all kinds of music, faith and philosophy, suspense movies and oh yes, architecture. I currently am working in marketing but planning to operate my own tourist-experience business. I enjoy good conversation, food, sports, boardgames, music, movies and books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my most memorable experience was meeting a group of Irish students out in an open field near a castle and just sharing our thoughts about everything we had time for. Another cool thing was staying out all night in Helsinki, Finland and seeing the sun come up at 3 in the morning!

Teach, Learn, Share

really love people who are passionate about their future, who are really good at one thing or two, open-minded, deep thinkers and spontaneous fun-lovers, open to experiencing new things
