About Me


taking off (coming down)


Ive been working, living, and playing in New York City for the past several years. After a long roadtrip in the states and a jaunt back in my hometown, I've decided to buckle down and apply to nursing school. Over the next few months I'll be living in Cape Town, South Africa, working at the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation. Now I'm waiting for the winter to end so that playing can take priority. Give me a place to rest my head as a settle in to Cape Town and Ill cook you breakfast in return!


make the world a heaven to your love, and scream it to the gods

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I joined couchsurfing.com a few years ago and have met many great friends through the couch surfing community both in New York City and during my travels. I wish I could provide a bed but my mean dog might bite your face off. I've surfed a bit across the seas and in the states, and am now looking forward to learning more about Cape Town through the CS community.


Living simply and sustainably (except for this massive splurge of taking a gas-guzzling roadtrip). Cooking with hot peppers grown in our back yard. Forming community wherever it is that I am.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

every interaction that transcends language barriers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been involved in a sewing collective for the past year thats all about sharing skills from knitting, stitching, creating and mending. So if you have loose buttons or short legs I can help fitting your clothing rite. I also hope to build my skills with powertools, as well as working my green thumb.

Countries I've Visited

Laos, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In
