About Me


To travel, observe, and enjoy! I want to acquire knowledge (both useful and non) and it would be a definite bonus to meet some good people in the process.


I'm a Buffalo girl living in Chicago. I love music, craft beer, and spending time with interesting people. I'm a former nanny and human service professional that took the leap into the business world and am currently living the Chicago dream! I'm looking for opportunities to learn new things and travel and this seems like a great site to make some progress in at least one of those areas.


Go big or go home. Never stop learning. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm just looking to open my place up to weary travelers and possibly make a few friends in the process. Eventually I would like to use this site for travel accommodations as well.


I come from a big family and have been able to use that as an excellent source for travel accommodations in the past. Couchsurfing so far has been a great experience for me!


Records, good beer, theatre, singing, food (all varieties, open to trying new things!), playing the electric cello (true story- surf my couch and you can see it in person), reading, spending time at parks and beaches, throwing a football (not as good at catching one), traveling, dance, anything else that comes up and strikes me as entertaining.

Music, Movies, and Books

All of it. Introduce me to something new- If you've got it on vinyl or wanna play it for me on your guitar? Even better.
