About Me


Travel more, explore more, live dreams!


I'm: brunching, walking around the city, discovering new places, seeing live music, taking pics.

I enjoy spontaneity, but am also a planner. I can't get enough: photography, architecture, street art.

Love traveling, exploring, adventuring. And laughing above all else.


Keeping it freaky, geeky & Greeky

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've crashed on friend's couches (and them on mine!) all over the world long before joining couchsurfing, so it was a natural progression for me to end up here.
I love meeting new people & joining in on new adventures.
At home, I love to walk all over SF. It's an incredibly walkable city. Also, there is always some event going on, usually free, & I try to keep up with what's going on - get in touch if you want to see some music, walk around a neighborhood, eat good food, etc.


I've met some great people through CS that have enriched my life while traveling & beyond. Some continue to be close friends to this day & that's what it's all about.
