About Me

**I don't host unvaccinated surfers, or cigarette smokers***(or anybody who is not a fan of showers)

**feel free to send requests in advance, but I will rarely confirm prior to a week before**
^please do not message me if you haven't read the above link, or if you think couchsurfing is just "free Airbnb".

Hello all! I am a native Rhode Islander, but I've also lived in Ohio, NYC, Puerto Rico, India, Malaysia, and Israel. Here in Rhode Island, I am active both with the couchsurfing community and with the Fulbright community in my home state. I love to learn about foreign cultures and spend a lot of my free time planning events for both CS and Fulbright :) I enjoy hosting couchsurfers, introducing them to my community and family, and sharing the joy of cultural exchange with new people. In my free time, I love bike rides, dancing, and throwing parties. There's a high likelihood of being invited to join me for those activities :)

I quite enjoy hosting and have a lot to share with my surfers. I have extra bicycles, a kayak, sporting equipment, all of which I love to share, and also tend to invite surfers to join me for dancing on Wednesdays.

Ahorita, especialmente quiero invitar couchsurfers quien puedan ayudarme con mi español!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've had the joy of couchsurfing alone in about 35 countries, and of hosting nearly 100 travelers at my home :)
