Live the dream

ABOUT ME

I am a grad student at UCSB who enjoys mathematics, swing dancing, running, and traveling. I have been vegan for 8 years and love to make food and exchange recipes. I love experiencing different cultures and meeting fun people from around the globe.

Plan on rain,
Pack for snow,
Smile like the sunshine

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Traveling, hosting, organizing potlucks, making friends.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The summer before beginning college I took a three week trip around Europe with a good friend of mine. We crashed on couches of a few people we knew and stayed in hostels. I loved the hosteling experience, especially meeting travelers and becoming good friends quickly because of our shared experience.

While in Europe I surfed, hosted, met with local CSers, and threw vegan potlucks with some friends I made on CS. It was great!

Interests

Vegan cooking, running, mathematics, traveling, hiking, surfing, sailing, gardening, anything outdoors, trying new things, adventuring.

Music, Movies & Books

I like many movies. My favorite actor is Christopher Walken.

Musically, I really enjoy jazz, alternative, and rock. Some current favorite artists: Oscar Peterson, Josh Ritter, Mason Jennings, Dave Matthews Band, Kistehén Tánczenekar.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Road-trip through the Balkans.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people some basic swing dancing (lindy hop, east coast, shim sham), vegan cooking, as well as mathematics.

I also would love to learn more about raw foods.
