About Me


To eat my weight in nutella... almost there


An enthusiastic mixture of space cadet, goofball and nuttiness, I'm always looking for a new adventure!! I've just moved back from a stint teaching English in the Peace Corps, and am going back to school at UH.

I love meeting new people, and I'm always down to go exploring! However, my main passion in life is laughing, so let's share jokes!! (I have possibly the corniest sense of humor though, so it's not very hard to make me laugh) :D

Basically, some friends call me a hippie and some call me bohemian, but I'm really just a hapa gal ready to be friends with the world!!


Live to love, love to live.

No worries.

Live where your feet are.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far all of my experiences have been rewarding - every person I've met via CS has had such an interesting life, and they've all been excited to share stories! It is so refreshing to be a part of this community of like-minded souls


HISTORY!!! (yes, I know, I'm a nerd)
Watching scary movies -but through my hands cuz I always get scared!

  • cooking
  • cheese
  • movies
  • boxing
  • swimming
  • history
  • beaches

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: The Big Lebowski (come on, it's a classic!!)

Music: Reggae, Rock, Blues ... anything with a solid beat

Books: Expat Harem - but mainly because of how I gained the book... aka via a friendly cat-lady in Istanbul, who recognized a 'kindred spirit' in me/mistook me for a homeless person in need of a read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went swimming at a favorite beach on Oahu and came across a couple of sea turtles just doing their thing. At first I was scared because Discovery Channel's 'Shark Week' taught me sharks eat turtles/bite people that look like turtles. However, after overcoming my initial fears it was amazing to just be there, in that moment, with them.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to cook a mean mac 'n' cheese - and not from the box!!

I can also do a pretty impressive, if I say so myself, imitation of the cookie monster/Lil Jon.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Morocco, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom
