About Me


Hello Seattle...hold me secure in flight, sing me to sleep tonight.


I'm a food photographer living and working in Seattle, Wa. I just recently returned from a 3 month stay in Europe, where I had a grand ol' time meeting lots of new and wonderful people.
Being a food photographer, I'm a huge foodie, enjoy the arts and crafting. Being from Seattle (born and raised) I love music, and the perfect harmony of city vs nature (the more I travel, the more I see that that is truly hard to find).


Don't hold back - who are you not to be fabulous?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a few times now, all very successful and enriching experiences - I highly recommend it.
At the moment, I can only play as tour guide and a friendly cup of coffee. I hope to host someday soon though.


I've surfed couches in various parts of Europe.
