About Me

PHILOSOPHY

Trial and error, share your gifts, know your limits, push the boundaries.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to travel and learn as much as I can. We are all diversely wild & amazing travelers. I live in the vibrant area of Bushwick, Brooklyn. It's industrial and trendy. I love showing people the spots they wont read about in tourist books. I am so thankful for all of the beautiful CS people that I have met along the way. I LOVE CS and love to help travelers when I can. This journey is rad.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Open your heart and mind. Say yes to new chances. Even if it doesn't work out how you expect it, it will still be a trip.

Interests

Dancing, street art, yoga, tea, exploring underground places in the city (literally), seeing live music, photography, poetry, Burning Man, swimming in the ocean, telling corny jokes.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Cooked dinner near Uluru at sunset, swam in the world's second largest barrier reef, hitch-hiked 1300km, steared a passenger ferry in the Mediterranean Sea.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to sew and dance, cook you a Southern-style comfort food meal or maybe just tell you a good joke. I also love creating different kinds of drinks.
