About Me


Super friendly. I work in Social Enterprise for an Investment Fund called Root Capital. I am lucky enough to get to travel all over the world to work with smallholder farmers to help them earn a better living.

I love to dance, smile, make humor, discover the best coffees and architecture, explore, find little treasures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To find locals with an extra space or some extra time to show me/tell me about why you love the places in your towns, cities, countries.


Literature, Architecture, great museums, local music, local spirits, food, walking, laughing. I like people. And, the donkey is my favorite animal.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love vintage soul music, hip hop, cumbia, classic country western and ambient Icelandic gems.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I rode my bicycle from India to Cambodia and used to work in Hollywood.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have traveled extensively and can tell you random things and tidbits about many, many places.
