About Me


to live in an endless summer...

I grew up on a commune in California. I moved to New York to study at NYU. After I graduated, I became a teacher. There's lots that happened in let's get together and share stories!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I grew up on a commune that hosted couchsurfers. Since I left, I've been able to host and travel from time to time

My family has hosted numerous travelers...all of whom have changed my life in some way. I can't express how grateful I am that I am apart of family that let's absolute strangers stay in the house! I've couchsurfed a lot in the Bay Area and around New Zealand and Australia.


Thrifting, adventuring, bouldering on the East river, long night walks.
