About Me

I am currently nomadic so most likely won't be able to host right now but I will try to update my profile to my current location so we can meet up!

CURRENT MISSION

To simply be present.

ABOUT ME

I appreciate both the outward journey and inward journey. Finding joy in the beauty of nature, music, art, and human connection, and ultimately letting it all dissolve into the stillness within.

PHILOSOPHY

"At any moment, you have a choice that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it."
— Thich Nhat Hanh

"Wisdom is knowing I am nothing. Love is knowing I am everything. And between the two my life moves."
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"When I say be creative, I don't mean that you should all go and become great painters and great poets. I simply mean let your life be a painting, let your life be a poem."
— Osho

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."
— Paulo Coelho

"Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it."
— Dalai Lama

“Stop and listen to the heart, the wind outside, to the changing patterns of this mysterious life. It comes moment after moment, out of nothing, and disappears into nothing. Live with less grasping and more appreciation and caring.”
— Jack Kornfield

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've stayed with some wonderful hosts in Europe, and hung out with travelers who were visiting the LA area to show them around. I've also met up with couchsurfers at festivals and other events in the US and South America, and have recently had a few opportunities to host travelers, and will continue to host whenever I get the chance. It has been a great way to meet other fun, like-minded people, and to experience places in much more meaningful ways than would ever be possible otherwise. I'm so glad this community exists and can't wait to meet more people here!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Never having been outside of North America, at the age of 26, I quit my full-time job and decided to take my freelance projects on the road so that I could get to know more of the world. Now, almost 10 years later, I'm addicted to this lifestyle and am doing and seeing amazing things and meeting great people every day!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach yoga, meditation, songs/mantras.
Love to learn and share!
