About Me

Currently traveling and unable to host. I've been living abroad in Japan for the last 5 years teaching and am taking the long way back to the US for a career change. Hoping to make new friends along the way! Not here to freeload, I'm just a social person who'd rather spend time getting to know new people and learn about their stories and culture rather than twiddling my thumbs in a hotel alone ha. Happy to cook for you! (Keep the fire extinguisher on hand 🧯)

I'm a hobbyist costume designer and spend a lot of time involved in alternative performing arts - drag, burlesque, dance, shibari, living paintings, and general cabaret.

Huge cinefile for classic and low budget B horror films 💜🧛🏻‍♂️🦈

Ask me about the time I had a pet chipmunk 😂🐿️

Allergic to w33d and need to avoid being around it. No judgement, just please let me know so I can find a different place 👍

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I quit my job in Japan and am taking the long way home. I'm hoping to meet fun and interesting people along the way :)


I like to find new and interesting/unique things wherever I can. So I'm always on the look out :) Animals are a passion for me, I love learning about them and want to spend more time in the future volunteering at sanctuaries
