About Me


Use theater to bridge the rural - urban communication gap!


I like dancing with no rules, walking at night, practical things, talking about "the whys" in life, making up stories to songs, sitting on the grass/sand, and going to new places.

Third year undergraduate from California. I like keeping busy between work, studying, acting, friends, and travel. I have been bestowed with many opportunities to travel which has left me with a continuous drive to discover more places, as I am sure everyone on this site can relate with.


I think politics currently consists of relationships and promises, very similar to how pop culture functions and for that reason I do not spend much time trying to understand it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am currently studying abroad in Lima, Peru trying to learn more of my mother's Latin American roots. I am going to be traveling during summer break with my friend to his home town of Cordoba, going through Chile and along the way we're going to need place to stay!!!


I have yet to experience the official couchsurfing experience through this site. But I have couchsurfed up and down the cost of California crashing at extended friends houses for various university convergences and events. Having a site that organizes this makes complete sense!!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The South American world wind adventure trip I am currently undertaking. I would have to say this is pretty amazing!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I have some experience building and maintaining aquaponic systems. Which is using fish waste as manure to grow plants in an enclosed system. Its a great alternative way to grow vegetables - go urban gardening!!

I love acting, if you need help with an audition piece or scene I would love to help you work on your blocking or stage presence, offering my perspective. Thespian love!
