About Me

Hi, I'm Aly! I work in a landscape architecture firm in Boston, where we design outdoor spaces to better the environment and the public realm. On the side, I'm an artist specializing in pyrography, participating in art markets and galleries when I can. The majority of my summer is spent in the woods hiking, while winters are saved for snowboarding (either way, mountains). I love to travel, and just got back from a trip out west visiting some of Utah's beautiful national parks.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Currently hoping to find a place to stay for Newport Folk Festival this year! While hotels and airbnbs have their place, I love staying with locals and having more of the 'couchsurfing' experience.


Backpacking, thru-hiking, plant identification, vegetarian cooking, live music, snowboarding, reading on commutes, art & design, flower arranging, volunteer work, running, meditation, food.
