About Me


I'm a Montessori teacher, teaching artist & designer living in New Orleans, LA. Pretty much a free spirit & creative person all around.

Note: My boyfriend, Josh, and I live together with our little dog, Porkchop in uptown New Orleans. We are both really relaxed people and happy to host in our home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have occasionally used couchsurfer over the past few years. Always great experiences. My boyfriend, Josh & I would love to start hosting again in New Orleans.


Experimental & simple cooking + eating, seeing (all art, architecture, nature), exploring, playing, making: ceramics, costumes, etc. + reading!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Been to Egypt, New Zealand, Kenya, & Europe. Crossed the USA using couchsurfer & rideshare for a design project. Have strictly eaten Local for 30 days in New Orleans, LA. Love Mardi Gras: dressing up with a band of friends for the sake that it's a 'Monday' & enjoying my growing wig collection in my magical home city.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Kenya, New Zealand, Switzerland
