About Me


To affect positive change through activism and creative expression, and to embrace my life!


I'm a feisty, radical queer! I work for an LGBTQ Latin@ youth organization, and I spend my time organizing, playing music and adventuring.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed through Central America and am now a happy host until I can indulge my wanderlust once again.


Rabble-rousing, sex worker rights, performing, photography, eccentricity, queer/feminist literature, travel (this is a given right?), womyn's health advocacy, story-telling. I sing in a queer choir and adore costumes, wigs and whimsy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Been completely lost and alone in a Panamanian jungle. It was incredible, and terrifying. I made it out alive, and hitch-hiked my way back to the border!

Also, falling in love (over and over again) has been the most amazing experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know quite a bit about community organizing, mental health & trauma and comprehensive sexuality education.

I'd like to learn how to make puppets. :)
