About Me

Greetings World! I am an extroverted introvert - Aquarius sun, Scorpio moon (like Bob Marley and Rick James - what a range!) with a passion for heartfelt connections and beautiful experiences. I love the extraordinary-ness of the ordinary, when moments beg to be seen and experienced wholly.

My jobs have run the gamut from middle school teacher to phone sex operator (for one night), freelance copy editor to bartender. I've got LOTS of tales! Right now, I am somewhere between being faithful and figuring it out (the path to financing my midwifery training). To date, I've assisted 7 births.

I think a lot, reflect a lot, feel a lot. And I enjoy being, and being with others who enjoy themselves too. I love variety and difference. I laugh loudly when it's really funny and still haven't fulfilled my self dare of kissing a stranger without warning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe in the kindness of strangers and that life is what we make it. I also believe in paying "it" forward, and that the most beautiful experiences happen accidentally.

I am open to beautiful connections of all kinds. Miracles are a way of life.
