About Me


a friend once said to me " you are a dreamer at heart and adventurer for life!" Doin my best to live up to that description:)

I just up and quit my job one day and have been doing the most random things since then..
I moved from Dallas to Austin and have been here the last couple years getting reacquainted with myself after all the corporate years. It's a great city but now am getting restless for some road trips.

I opened a Juice/Smoothie/Vegetarian food trailer on the east which is a lot of fun but maybe a little too much work.

Love cycling around town and have an extra bike to share.

Can take you kayaking on Town Lake via my TRC membership or rowing if you row.

I like nerdy stuff...ie..Nerd nite, Astronomy on Tap, Hot Science Cool Talks..just a few. And other not so nerdy stuff that pops up too!

Can show you some great urban hiking if you wanna stay local, tromping around the creeks with my dog.

Full Moon Yoga if you are in town at that time and like yoga outdoors under the full moon. Also have a favorite yoga studio or two or three:)

Also a big fan of secret swimming holes or at least the lesser known. And this area is full of them:)


Keep life simple and fresh...

I find my beliefs are limiting in most cases and the virtue of understanding serves me far better than my beliefs ever could.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I absolutely love hosting. Some turn out to be a friendship for the long run and some just a brief moment of a mix of their life and mine. Either way is always rewarding!


I wouldn't say it has changed my life.... although it has changed the way I look at life in many ways. I wish I had joined sooner..I've met and made some great friends.


yoga, science (particularly nuero), food..growing, cooking and eating, road trips, people..there are more but those are the basics...have to get up close if you wanna know more:)

Music, Movies & Books

I used to read quite a bit...not so much anymore but do miss it at times and will spend a cpl hours in Half Price books at times chilling and reading...usually philosophy. I love the violin and am overwhelmingly passionate learning this beautiful instrument.
Lots of them...Never Ending Story my all time fave. I love the
Luck Dragon.
Still dancing to the Cure and Talking Heads in my living room by myself if that tells ya anything about other music I love.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I am amazed at myself for joining this sight and opening up to all the new experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some great recipes to cook. Share food, stories, my extra bike:)
Currently learning more about the brain and how it functions...Complex and interesting.
