About Me

Medical Student. Dreamer. Thinker. Chef. Adventurer

Born on a small island full of life, moved to the US in the early 2000's but I am truly a global citizen. I enjoyed Costa Rican Pilsners, Ethiopian doro wet, and fiery Jamaican jerk. I would like to think I can sing, but I definitely love good music and vibes. Avid Swimmer and budding climber -- Lover of all things green

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be honest, Being a broke grad student sucks. Your heart is always set on travelling but your pocket book says naw.

Aside for monetary benefits, I believe my world is more complete when I get a unique chance to connect with the unique narrative of others. It is the main reason I chose to go into medicine, a deep love of people.

Also I am hoping through connecting with fellow surfers I can get unique tips on how to approach the next stages of my journey of life......it is a simple as that :)


I love learning about different political beliefs and religious practices. It was never good manners at the dinner table, but nothing reveals the heart of a person more that the core attributes that drives them.

I enjoy swimming, climbing, running (slowly), trying a new difficult sport, attempting to keep up with my little cousins (too much energy), meditation, journalling (infrequently), Food, eating, Food, eating and oh yeah food

Straight Out of Compton
Romeo + Juliet
Hail Caesar
Tomorrowland (although it was a flop)
The Big Short

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

went from a sitting a couch for most of my week, to a 5k and then a half marathon in 6 months

Getting ready for the next challenge :) *cough* triathlon *cough*

(remind me to share about the time I hiked a volcano too)

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can teach you about various histories from the countries I have travelled to in Africa and the Americas. I can share cultural meals from many of these places. I can also teach anyone how to drum :)

Learn: I would love to learn what you think is a huge area of growth for the community you live in and what you think you can do to change the reality. Also I would love to learn your favorite dance move.

Share: I would love to share a conversation, coffee, and a funny joke with you as a hostee or if I get a change to host you!

What I Can Share with Hosts

My warm spirit
A smile
A GREAT meal (not to toot my own horn)
Space (I will simple be present and enjoy the company)
