About Me


To be this person filled with color. To find a pink blade of grass that smells like honeysuckle. To track down the scent of Green.


I am a courageous little cookie with this never ending passion for people, trees, smells, words, and colors. I think the smells of rain, honeysuckle, cut grass and GREEN should be bottled up and be given the title of "LIFE."

I hail from that little town of Amityville on that little island called Long Island that juts out from that strange little place called New York City. I have a BA in English/Creative Writing and I'm particularly interested in children's literature and playwriting. My favorite book is "Dandelion Wine" by Ray Bradbury and "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll. I have had many various jobs- real and fake and think I'd rather explore the world instead of staying put in a cubicle.


"[Her] note was that of the universal stranger, the traveller moving through other people's arts and dreams."

"[I] shut my eyes as much as possible, to everything that should call me back to every-day life."

"I am an old traveller; I have read somewhat, heard and seen more, and dreamt more than all."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently living with family until I get my living situation sorted out so I can not host but one day when I have my very own couch I would love to share it with other travelers.


I've couchsurfed in Yerevan, Armenia between two very different hosts (one eccentric and one relaxed), in Antalya, Turkey/Istanbul, Turkey, in Cairo, Egypt. Unofficially in Bosnia, Serbia and Romania. Great each time.


Hiking, playing music, cinematography, photography, camping, playing the graveyard game, tracking down all the Spring Streets in the world.
