About Me


To explore and discover


I'm a freelance writer and I work in the communications department for Planned Parenthood, aka doing the I'm-a-twenty-something-in-a-creative-field-so-I'm-juggling-80-different-jobs-and-prospects-at-once thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host, surf, and go to events around the city.


I have had some great Couchsurfing experiences while surfing and meeting people through the site. When I was in Central America for the summer, I used Couchsurfing to find other travelers to hang out with, since I was alone. I found another girl from New York, and when we hung out we discovered we lived three blocks from each other!

My experiences as a host have been mixed. Because of this, I have to choose my surfers very carefully and don't end up hosting very frequently. I apologize in advance if I'm unable to host you.


I love: writing, reading, exploring, wandering, adventures, bookstores, crafting, cooking, baking, shopping, fashion, cafes, finding cheap (and especially free) things to do, going out to eat, pugs.
