About Me


To make you smile.


I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I love to laugh and make other people laugh.


Make the best of everything, don't stress the rest of anything. I want to make everyday better than the last.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet new people. That's it. Tell me where and when we should meet and I'll see you there!

If you meet me in New York, there's a good chance I'll be driving you around somewhere. I love chauffeuring people.

You can see me in this CouchSurfing video:


My first experience with CS was an incredible nightlife guide for two nights in Dresden, Germany, in 2008 and I've been hooked ever since! I had a very cool girl stay in my flat in Prague. I have been hosted in Budapest for a night and in Brussels for 2 nights while i was interviewed about CS for TVBrussel. I had 3 different hosts and attended a cs meeting/party all in a whirlwind weekend trip to Berlin and Dresden. I needed a last minute place to stay in Dublin on my way home and had my emergency couch request fulfilled by the incredible Dublinguy.

Since my return from europe, I've continued to participate in CS by attending events, meeting people for coffee/drinks/partying, and occasionally hosting. I've met some outstanding people from around the globe and am excited to meet more!
