About Me


Fun adventures with cool people


Mid 20s, love to meet new people, and to push myself to do fun things that scare me.

I love preparing and eating delicious food, good conversation, partying, world affairs, new adventures.

Super active and love the outdoors - run marathons, cycle, hike, yoga, soccer, swimming, dancing, table-tennis etc; basically, I'm a Tough Mudder wannabe.

I'm passionate about my work as a Compassionate Communication Trainer. It's so fulfilling to help people to connect with one another. I'm close to finishing a book all about this!


Every day do something that scares the bejesus out of me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Once I get back from my travels and move into my new, crazy-fun, house I'm going to start hosting CS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One summer I cycled from Paris to the bottom tip of France; it was 2 weeks of pure joy, racing through the countryside at up to 25mph with 9 buddies. Oh. My. Goodness. That was pure exhilaration.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to share Sign Language (and happy to oblige the usual requests for the dirty signs). I can also juggle (and do a number of 3 ball tricks).
