Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have some events in late October I need some help with housing for! Also, have a beautiful yard that you can come set up a tent in - love meeting new people from around the world!


Anything outdoors - observation and activities
My pup is wonderful we spend lots of time going on nature walks and camping
I spend lots of time with my family and friends
Becoming more ecocentric by living a smaller carbon footprint- watching waste and consuming less
I speak for justice and action for marginalized and environmental efforts as a political organizer and activist
Trained in urban planning; love cities and helping create more livable, engaged communities
Reading is a great past time - just read American War and Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist
