About Me

Hi! My name is Laura and I live in Austin, Texas, USA! I own and manage my own business in Austin selling frozen bananas dipped in chocolate (among other things) and topped with delicious toppings! When I'm not working I like to go to yoga (I practice Bikram Yoga) and try out coffee shops and local restaurants. I also like music, going to concerts, and theatre and art. I am also interested in microbes!

I can be kind of shy at first but I'm interested in meeting people from other places and learning about other cultures!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to connect with people from other places so I can learn about that place from their perspective!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of music including: Sufjan Stevens, Danielson (Famile), Radiohead, The National, Psalters, mewithoutYou, Gorillaz, DM Stith, The Smiths, and some other stuff. Depending. Although lately I listen to a lot of classical (especially violin) music. I like to learn about different types of music.

Movies: Lawrence of Arabia, Spirited Away, Danielson: A Family Movie, Howl's Moving Castle, Dancer in the Dark, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Dark Knight, Pretty In Pink

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have gone without eating for 18 days.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a little bit about business since I have had my own business for 13 years. I know a little piano (but would like to learn more).

I want to learn how to play an instrument (I am learning piano right now and know a little bit of mandolin), to speak Spanish better, to do better business, to make chocolate from the bean (I have done this before but not totally successfully), to use Adobe Flash, to spin fire. I love learning to make things! Almost anything, really.
