About Me


To see and enjoy as much of this planet as I can.


Covid19 took me to Ljubljana! I am here for the time being.

I had been living in Prague for a while and will probably return in the Spring of 2020. I won't have a couch available until then.

I love hanging out with people from around the world. I do not necessarily need a host when traveling, I am happy also just to meet up.


I am a yes person in a no world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it's fun! It is one of the best things I have ever done. I enjoy attending and sometimes organizing events.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Left the US to spend my adult life in Europe

Teach, Learn, Share

As former student of international relations and geopolitics , I am always up for good conversations about anything that goes on the world. I can always help with English lessons. I can also teach you how to talk in a southern US accent if you want. I can also make an awesome Dutch-Indonesian satay sauce .
