Lover of the outdoors and travel. Recently got a second home in Joshua Tree where I split my time between Joshua Tree and Costa Mesa. I am a hairstylist, educator for Davines (haircare line from Parma, Italy) and I own and design and make jewelry and housewares. I have a sustainable line where I source vintage found objects as well as sourcing from Mother Nature to create my line. Some of the things I like are perusing museums, travel, flea markets up-cycling vintage found objects, Yé-yé era, vintage clothes, Dadaism, Bauhaus art movement, collecting vinyl, modernism, going to shows.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have never tried it… My friends have and I thought to give it a try.
I love to travel, exploring abandoned areas, love vintage shopping and sourcing for materials for my up-cycled vintage found objects jewelry and housewares line, cooking, going to live shows.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
There's a couple that were on my bucket list
1) Visited the Bauhaus in Dessau and stayed in the former student dorms last summer.
2) Visited Beelitz Heilstatten abandoned sanatorium in Brandenburg, Germany this past fall.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Well, I have two places.. One in Costa Mesa and the other in Joshua Tree.. There is so much out in the Hi-Desert so much in the music and art scene as well as all of the wonderful secret spots of the desert…
