About Me

Aloha! I'm a travel-loving butterfly living in Sacramento. On my free time, I scuba dive at a local lake or ocean, take pictures, produce videos, and skydive when it’s not raining. If I'm not doing any of the above, you can probably find me spending time with my daughter, training my dogs, or running on the streets.

I'm outgoing and generally friendly. I tend to talk fast and ask a lot of questions, because I’m very curious by nature! Blame my day job. I'm not a picky eater but I’m a sucker for salmon and I'll try all most anything once.

I work multiple jobs and sometimes have some pretty weird work hours - I'm usually awake very early or stay up very late. Be aware I may not be able to accompany you while you explore, but I do absolutely want to get to know you as much as I can!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love experiencing new things, meeting people & learning about other cultures. If I could, I would travel nonstop to do so, but that's not entirely feasible with a full-time job and a daughter to raise. As a result, I take trips when I can, and would love to be part of the Couchsurfing community.

I look forward in making new friendships and connections in any shape or form. I thrive on interpersonal communication, and I love that home sharing and hostels offer authentic human experiences, rather than the Marriott.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Earlier this year, I went scuba diving at a Mexican Cenote into a bat cave. Also, I received my solo skydiving certificate and working on my A license. I don't like heights, so I was absolutely terrified and conquered my fears.
