About Me


When traveling - To see a new country through the eyes of a local. To feel like I live in the place for a moment. To shift my perspective, beliefs or assumptions.

When home - To provide ambitious travelers with an inside scoop on Seattle and the surrounding islands, as well as a nice blow up bed in the heart of downtown!


Was born in seattle but lived in Italy 4 years after college. Work in fine dining and am an absolute food fanatic. Liberal, active, into fashion and funk music


Ask questions and don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself for the sake of learning!
The more I travel, the less I assume.
You cannot understand a place staying in a resort. Couch surfing and home stays are the only way to do it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By offering advice, a mattress, and my company when I can!
I like to travel very modestly and relationships formed abroad are what I remember most. I realize how hard it can be to bridge the gap between tourist and local and couch surfing is a fabulous avenue!


Stayed Kilkenny, Ireland, in an abandoned mill occupied by squatting artists. Stayed with a local musician and was hooked!
Love seeing Seattle through my surfers' enthusiastic eyes!


Going to a coffee shop and spending the whole day studying languages and reading. Taco truck. Doing things that freak me out. Yoga and existentialism. Bargaining.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach- English and Italian languages, how to ride a horse, how to cook a mean burger, travel advice on a budget
Learn-I would love learn basic phrases in every language and conversational fluency in Spanish, understand the social forces present in the places that I visit, gain new recipes, practice scuba

What I Can Share with Hosts

Respectfulness of their space, openness to trying their cuisine, an interest in seeing their favorite places
