About Me


I've recently returned to my hometown, after 10 years away, to reconnect with family and try to contribute to a positive cultural shift in the South. I work in probably the most idyllic setting imaginable making artisanal cheese, and I'm starting a Rock and Roll Camp for Girls with a couple of other cool people. In general, I'm a fan of having adventures/going on road trips/exploring. The only sport for me is Ping Pong, but I'm a fan of Roller Derby as well. I just need my bones in tact, so I stick to spectating. I adore trashy 90s dance and pop music (and the not trashy stuff, too). I'm queer. I have the dumbest dog you'll ever meet, but she's so cute it almost doesn't matter.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf when I can, and typically like to try to host at least a couple of folks wherever I'm living at any given moment!


I've been hosted a few times, and they were all great experiences. I've hosted a couple of times, also cool. Sold.


Music, ping pong, social movements, autumn, hiking, politics, singing, dancing, good conversation, ROAD TRIPS

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC: If it's done well, I probably like it. Sometimes I like it when it's not.

Books: What has happened to my attention span that it has been so long since I've finished something other than a piece of young adult fiction? I'll eat a book of poetry for breakfast.

Movies: Anything featuring Sandra Bullock (I'm only half joking. Sandra holds an important place in my heart.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Jeep trip through the salt flats of Uyuni, in Bolivia. Ayahuasca in the amazon basin. Machu Picchu. Tango shows in intimate bars in Buenos Aires. Maroon Bells national park. Tierra del Fuego. Vermont in the fall. Road trip across the US. Undercover Yellowfin Tuna buying/exporting in Mexico.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people about my city/cities, basic spanish, ping-pong, how to drive, how to play simple rhythm guitar, and how to make fried okra.
