About Me


To discover and express my inner authenticity in the most honest and humble way.


I have been an exchange student in St. Petes Russia, so I know uncertainty. Everyone feels comfortable with me, I honor all life:).I like meeting new people, esp. friendly adventurous ones! I study science, foreign language (Greek next), literature, and natural phenomena such as the symmetry of a flower. I am interested in talking about physics and I lean toward science of mind type thinking. I believe that how I think and act affects the world.Peace is the ultimate priority in my life. I have a 12 year old son he has red hair and his name is Isaiah.I have four beautiful sisters they are gentle and smart; we go to the pacific coast beaches together we live just 15 minutes away. We like picnics and walks.


Kindness is a strength.
My life is an adventure travel, I am a godess tourista here for a limited time only. Enjoy!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have just joined, but I could bring cookies :D


At the moment I am a "Surfer". Staying in Eureka with my sisters (they have separate houses). I am looking to relocate here and have been looking for work for a month! They have each couch surfed at my house for a summer(more like a year*shruggs*), I enjoy returning the favor.

I think the best part of "surfing" is the spontaneity, and the fact that such a small thing as a couch can be a tremendous blessing of rest, peace, and community.


Language, science, Drawing, Free running, Writing novels, I love to discuss authors of Literature. I despise politics and political discussion, I feel its a form of egoistic conflict, of which nothing good seems to come.I love all sorts of film, I also watch cooking shows, I like to cook, I like to have dinner parties. Oh yeah I love beer, can drink wine and avoid (for myself) Liquor. I am interested in medicine and dream of going to Med School.
