About Me


I wanna travel, make art, lasting memories and friends along the way!


I graduated from Tyler School of Art in 2013. I had the privilege of studying abroad from 2011-2012 in Rome, where I traveled whenever I could and made some friends along the way.

I'm a painter, who owns a gallery and studio with my best friends, cheese monger in trainer and wanna-be beer enthusiast.


Every day above ground is a good day!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed and want to surf some more! I've hosted and probably want to host/ meet up with YOU!


I surfed for my first time in Paris April 2012, and it wasn't exactly the most pleasant time. The city itself was amazing and I would have loved more time there, but my host was looking for a different experience than me, and unfortunately we did not have the same intentions.

As a host, I've had nothing but a phenomenal time and have met up with some extraordinary people thus far on this journey. I hope that continues when I'm able to surf some more. :)

I look forward to keep surfing and meet others because I believe in the CSing experience!!


I'm an artist, specifically in painting and drawing. Any conceptual and visually engaging work can catch my attention. Music is my second love, I plan my year around musical festivals and there is nothing better than seeing a live show! I also enjoy carrying my sketchbook everywhere, star gazing, camping, bonfires, beaches, woods, swimming at night, hills, drawing my friends and everything I see, cooking, dancing, exploring, hookah, walking around at night, color, laughing and just an over all good time! AND BEER. A nice, good beer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have worked first hand with a famous, working artist in Rome as an assistant and watch the creative process unfold.

I have walked in the Highlands in Scotland.

Played in the first major snowfall Rome had seen in 25 years.

Witnessed a Christmas comet in Frankfurt, Germany

Ran into friends from the States on the streets of Milan, Italy and spent the night with them chit chatting up members of our favorite band.

Walked around Paris by myself at 2 am to 5 am to experience the rarity of a quiet, beautiful city.

Teach, Learn, Share

I make a pretty good home made pizza-- from my own dough, sauce and local ingredients!

I'd love to learn French!
