About Me


My mission is to get a global perspective; to broaden my experiences, to meet people who offer positivity, creativity, and a true sense of friendship. Let's connect.


i summarize myself best in bullet points, so here it goes:
-youngest of five, crazy kids.
-cultured, travelled, non-judgmental type. judging is for squares.
-dancing feeds my soul, and it's a personal dream to join a flash mob. f'real.
-i speak english, spanish, and brooooken hebrew (working on it, though).
-LA native, studied in NYC, Buenos Aires, and just outside of Tel Aviv. Currently in South Korea and stoked on the opportunity to meet some great people.
-truly a friendly spirit. say hi :)


put siracha on everything. ha, but no, be kind, be cool, be fun! there's nothing a great omelette, some good conversation, and a glass of malbec can't enhance.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


new to this site, but i've had a lot of friends recommend it. hoping to host any of you beautiful people any time you need.


no experience.


film, music, (all genres, really), lit, good wine, people, exploring, fashion, writing, and all things entertainment-related.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Pretty much anything made in the 1990s.
Music: Dance, Electronica, and House have my heart. But I also enjoy blues, soul, neo-soul, pop, rock, some rap and, gasp, even some country. My music tastes are broad and varied. If I can move to it in some way, I'll probably like it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In San Francisco, I danced in a large, open field, surrounded by close friends, as deer looked on from the hills that blanketed the area. It was...bizarre and crazy and wonderful.

Teach, Learn, Share

i love meeting free spirits and people who prescribe to the belief that everyone you've had in your life was once a stranger. let's not be strangers anymore :)

Countries I've Lived In

Argentina, Israel, South Korea, United States
