About Me

I'm easy to get along with (I hope) and enthusiastic about meeting new people. I love Hello Kitty. I've been vegetarian for 12 years. I have four tattoos and twelve piercings. Get to know me!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had an amazing time surfing all over Europe summer 2013 and now I'm hosting a bit in New York :)


One of my biggest hobbies is dance. I mostly dance hip-hop, but I also enjoy contemporary and jazz.

I also like to bake a lot and make up my own recipes. I love to experiment with different flavors.

When I'm not dancing or baking, I like to read, knit, and listen to music. I recently joined a skeeball league, so that's been one of my new hobbies too!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Eating deep fried scorpion in Beijing's Wangfujing snack street. Can't say I'd do it again, but glad I did!

Like I already said, I love to bake. I'd love to teach you to make something if you're interested!! And of course the best part about baking... eating afterwards :)
