About Me


gaining experience without growing up. making art. finding the perfect way to cook leftovers.


I cook, I knit, I find adventures to have around my fabulous city. I love my work in the theater, public art projects, and unusual combinations of genre. I also love listening to stories, and learning what motivates people.


Take it as it comes. The world is a big weird place, and the people are weirder, but that's the beauty of it all!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


See "CS Experience."


I've surfed with awesome people in Germany, Denmark, Norway and Australia. (Thank you so much to all my hosts!) And had fun adventuring around with other travellers in Chile and Australia. Here in New York, I've been to some fun gatherings too, and organized a Free Hugging event with a CSer from Denmark.


learning how things work. chatting. wandering. late night eateries. the great outdoors. pubs, and watching people shoot pool. laughing. cooking.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How do people decide what to write here? On the one hand, everything feels amazing sometimes, and on the other, it feels so mundane.

Teach, Learn, Share

One of my favorite parts of interacting with other surfers has been cooking together, sharing recipes. What would you like to make?
