About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to live honestly, listen deeply, breathe fully, laugh heartily, & learn continually.

ABOUT ME

i'm an aquarius. i 100% believe in compassion, understanding and being open to new experiences. i'm a humanist. i love that i learn so much from every friend & stranger. i love walking slowly, hiking and being still, contemplating life and letting go of my thoughts. i love eating & drinking. i love sleeping & dreaming. i love singing in spanish. love singing in general. i love lower-case letters. I love learning new things. have an instagram called "something.new.every.day" ;) i love hearing stories & laughing until it hurts. and i love being so comfortable with someone that we can either be loud & crazy or completely silent.

I have a company called The AtHome Experience which focuses on unplugging from the usual high-speed connections and having more meaningful interactions through the healing arts and sustainable living. The goal is to help people feel better, fulfilled, welcome & At Home. www.TheAtHomeExperience.com

PHILOSOPHY

to live fully. to be open to new ideas and perspectives. to not assume but rather be available for the unexpected. to learn. to feel. to watch. to notice the subtlety, and to be generous in heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

hoping to collide with people in my own country and others. to offer my couch and get to know interesting new people, whether it's for coffee or a couch or venturing out. i have always imagined a great society would be one where we all can give and receive freely.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

all my couchsurfing experiences have been so different (whether i was on the couch or visa versa) and i really appreciate that. there is not one couch or encounter i like better than another - frankly, i just completely dig the opportunity to embrace the myriad experiences. in life, in general, i learn so much, but sharing a space with someone is really enlightening and it feels so good to know i'm helping someone out. i wish more of life was like this.

Interests

singing, learning/doing new things; reading, hiking, maps, laughter, capoeira, duende, cooking (!!!), olives, silence, flexibility, spicy food... and soft ginger candy.
