About Me


to be a human sponge of experience!


I'm a open minded gal who is down for just about anything. I enjoy a well balanced life of downtime and a fair share of shenanigans. I am currently working my dream job and surround myself with the most wonderful of people. You are certainly not going to hear any complaints from me, life is good :)

P.S.- I DO NOT LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY, I cannot tell you how many requests I get from people thinking I live in NYC. I live in Rosendale which is a small town 2 hours north of NYC. It is quite lovely and if you're looking for a Catskills getaway then you have found the right place!


Shit, hot damn, get off your ass and jam!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I did a 3 month trek around the United States in the Fall of 2008 with one of my besties and we surfed our booties off! It was amazing.

Since this trip I have been hosting here and there, as much as I can.

p.s.- I love doing host's dishes :)


It has been absolutely WONDERFUL, I especially love the cultural exchange that can happen, plus if you're hosting it gives you a chance to explore your own area while being a guide!

Surfing = awesome, I have lucked out 100%

Couchsurfing is Golden!


GLITTER! Live music, non-profits, shenanigans, rolling dice, outdoors (especially swimming), winter hibernation, hugs, films, potlucks,going to the movies, unique facial hair, road trips, sarcasm, down-time, blah blah blahing!

Music, Movies, and Books

I've realized that I like any song about whiskey:)

I'll listen to anything from Dolly to Biggie and beyond!

I am an avid movie goer. If you need any recommendations, I'm your girl.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending significant time on a Native American Lakota reservation, cleaning David Bowie's toilet (and meeting him!), traveling cross-country for 3 months and meeting tons of couchsurfers!!!
