About Me

Hi there! I spend most of my life pretty excited. If that doesn't bother you we're in business!

I just left my job at a small nonprofit in Philly and I'm doing some traveling before I start school at Temple University in August. Travel with me?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really love meeting other people and, mostly, showing off how awesome Philadelphia is. I'm about to have a ton of travel coming up, so I'm looking for someone to show me around their awesome cities and possibly even host me.


Tell me about your town's history! Or tell me all about your favorite podcast.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really do like most of the things I watch and read. My favorite book right now is probably either Last Call or the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. But we both know you don't want to read a list of titles so let's meet up and share!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 13 I stayed a few nights on a ranch in Australia that was the size of Delaware. There was almost no light pollution and I saw how many stars there are meant to be in the sky. Now there's a little voice in the back of my head that, when I look up at the sky, just says, "this sucks."

Teach, Learn, Share

Right now I'm trying to learn German! I think it's a really beautiful language but I am STRUGGLING with some syllables, yo. Duolingo just basically shakes her head at me and is like "come on, Clare. Get your shit together."

I can teach you to make amazing pancakes. Hint: it's mostly just adding more butter. Like, an unreasonable amount of butter. If it's good enough for Julia Childs it's good enough for me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Do I sound like a cheapskate if I say "conversation?" I'm not working and I'm about to go to school, which, since I'm American, is a very expensive proposition.

Maybe a six pack? I also have a story about seeing a bunch of grave stones under the Betsy Ross bridge in Philadelphia. I dunno, what do you need?

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand
