About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Save the world! Salvar el mundo!

ABOUT ME

I was born in the USA, moved to Hong Kong when I was 11, and went to University in Dunedin, NZ. I have traveled southeast Asia and some of Europe with my family. I traveled heaps around NZ, spent the last couple years living in California and Oregon and have moved to Mexico for Peace Corps. I have loved camping for as long as I can remember and have been passionate about working to save the environment since I started camping.

Nací en los estados unidos, crecí en Hong Kong, y asistí a la universidad en Nueva Zelanda. Me mude a México por trabajo con Peace Corps. Estoy apasionada acerca del medio ambiente - disfrutando la naturaleza y también preservándola.

PHILOSOPHY

Living the dream!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing, making friends!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

From meeting awesome people to discovering new places to finding my dad a climbing partner, couchsurfing has been super awesome and super useful!

Interests

Tramping, cooking, travelling, swimming, SCUBA diving, outrigger canoeing, kayaking, archery, camping (fire!), rocking out to live music, rocking around barefoot - which seems to be frowned upon here... dancing - especially in MUD!

Music, Movies & Books

Especially local music, but in general dub, dnb, some dubstep, but also folk and blues and rock

Books - Jose Saramago, Isabelle Allende, Barbara Kingsolver, books about adventures...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

New Zealand!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm all about learning and sharing skills! Currently teaching about the environment and how cool it is and why we should save it - but I am learning so much more in language, culture and relationships here in Mexico. I've got a few sneaky skills to share - I'll give you a lesson on a uke if you like. You'll have to meet me to find out what else...
