About Me

I'm a busy young professional millennial disguised as avocado toast. #synergy

Really, I don't host people (not yet anyway) because I live in a studio with a guinea pig. My goal is to eventually move into a two bedroom condo and host people in my other room.

I'm LGBT, relatively friend although shy, and quirky. Also extremely self-conscious and awkward. It's okay though! I can be charming, just not all the time.

I'm a writer, I love most people, I relish in new experiences, and I enjoy meeting new people. Even if only briefly :)

Anyway, if you want to get coffee or need a hangout buddy in Phoenix, hit me up! I do not drive (ha, I'm in the right place for that obviously) but I can meet you with some careful planning beforehand.

CURRENT TRAVEL PLANS (keep forgetting to get actually verified, derp, what a novel idea):

- I'm going to Los Angeles in October 2017 to see THE NATIONAL. I'm so, so, so excited. I love them so much and haven't seen them before. I'm planning on taking a mini-vacation around it. :D

- In May of 2017, for my 30th birthday, I'm going back to Europe. Sweden -> Finland -> Estonia. This is still very much in the planning stages, but I haven't taken a real trip in years, and I really owe it to myself. I've been working a lot since my early 20s.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like meeting people and adventuring. I also consider myself a global citizen, which is a little cringeworthy, but it's the truth.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've interviewed Taylor Swift, traveled Europe very broke, done stand-up comedy, moved across the country by myself, spoke at a conference in Seattle, started a pop culture blog, and self-published a book.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm down for giving advice on Tempe/Phoenix area. If you have any writing/editing-related questions, I can probably help in that way.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Kindness, I'll buy you dinner, humor, goofy stories. My life has been ... oddly delightful in some respects. :D
