About Me

**PLEASE READ MY PROFILE COMPLETELY. I GET A LOT OF REQUESTS. MY PLACE IS ALSO NOT A HOSTEL. CS IS ABOUT AN EXPERIENCE. THANK YOU!**

I was born in Laguna, Philippines; I grew up in suburbs of Seattle; and I've been living in NYC for 14 years! I'm a professional concert and Broadway dancer living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. I live with my boyfriend Jack (Biomedical Engineering, MD/PhD student), our roommates Reynaud (Marketing graduate student) and Kristen (Molecular & Cellular Biology, PhD candidate), and our beautiful black cat Aslan.

PHILOSOPHY: Love what is ahead by loving what has passed. Find inner peace and happiness. Share to the world the knowledge you posses. Live while learning and learn by living. Travel light. Share experiences. Laugh a lot. Be honest. Learn. Love.

NOTE: Please also read the "My Home" section. Thank you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've traveled to Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and Switzerland. I feel fortunate to have met the most wonderful people from these countries and I am fuller each time I meet someone new. I wish I could describe to you how happy it makes me to think about the people I met along my travels! I miss them so much and I long to spend time with them whenever Life allows me to go on these amazing journeys.

My memorable experiences aren't singular. They are plural because of the amazing people who took good care of me: Holger (Sweden); Uschi , Jurgen, and Jan (Germany); Nils (Germany), Simon, Lina and Jurgen (Switzerland); and Patrick (France).

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy listening to different types of music, I don't watch enough movies or read enough books. But we have tons of books in the apartment! We have Hulu and Netflix... so there you have it!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Tagalog (the national language of the Philippines) and Dance (ballet, modern, improvisation). I am ready to learn anything. I enjoy sharing moments with people.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A place to sleep. A meal. A conversation. Suggestions on what to see and where to go in Brooklyn and NYC at large.
