About Me


Do a handstand in every country.


I'm always thinking about the next place I want to go! I haven't yet even scratched the surface of everything I want to see, but for the moment I spend my time reading travel memoirs, trying new foods, listening to one song on repeat for hours, and going on walks to nowhere. I enjoy sharing good food and drinks and going to parties just as much as jumping off cliffs, skydiving, and really any adventure I can get my hands on. Everything once, right? :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people, and some of my best travel experiences have been through serendipitously meeting some awesome locals to the area.

I can't host anybody right now, but I'm hoping to change that soon in a new apartment.


Traveling, swimming, dancing, reading, listening to good music, going to concerts, yoga, aerial circus, and anything adrenaline-filled.
