About Me

*About the virus: I can’t accept guests that have not passed the 14 day quarantine or haven’t been in China for 14+ days.

I don’t respond to messages that just say “hey” and nothing more. Please fill in details about yourself, your trip, and why you’re contacting me.

No sexual harassment. CS is not Tinder. 🏳️‍🌈💜


I’m an ESL teacher and love my students. They really light up my world.

Limited blankets so maybe bring a sleeping bag.

Read the home section if you need a place to crash. My place is new and still needs furniture!

Food: Deathly allergic to 🥜 ; 💕 plant based fuel for the body and soul 🌱 please don’t bring the bodies of tortured beings to my place : vegan home 🏡

Afro Puerto Rican Taino; born in SF 🌁 🇺🇸 . The “Indians” of my island are called Tainos. 🇵🇷

More about me:
Like many backpackers, I love life and I enjoy learning about unique and interesting cultures and all that holds them together. Traveling and experiencing what the world has to offer is the most amazing thing I could ever hope for. I love to explore new places and share my ideas and passion for all things living and truly alive. I love literature, plants and animals, bees and above all, people; for traveling would be nearly meaningless without the interaction of the locals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Paying it forward by providing a warm, safe place for travelers to stay, meeting locals when I'm traveling, as it helps me understand the culture and meet amazing people, and I’m also quite grateful to save on accommodation.


I really love chocolate and refined, simple pleasures, like park swings, the taste of a really good olive oil, and the smell of cinnamon. I'm always down to share a good book, spend a few hours contemplating art and paintings, go dancing, or enjoy the art of conversation! I also enjoy sleeping.

When in other countries, I inquire about the health care system, education and tuition expenses, and the local views on politics. This helps me to better understand the modern culture​ there and gives me a broader perspective of my own country as well as others.
