About Me

I'm not really a "go out and party" kind of girl--I prefer conversations in small groups of people. I like to travel alone, but mostly because I find it makes it easier to meet and talk to new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Favorite experience: crashed in Berkeley with a super gracious host while I was doing political gypsy work.


Hiking, snorkeling, camping, backpacking, showshoeing...basically exploring wild spaces. Yoga. Reading almost anything I can get my hands on. I have an extensive knowledge of pop music from 1950-on, and have a weird knack for remembering song lyrics (try me).

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Election, Heathers, Cabin In The Woods.

Books: Consilience, Cryptonomicon, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Ender's Game

Music: Os Mutantes, Justice, Howlin' Wolf, Miranda Lambert, Roy Orbison, Pink Floyd, Elmore James, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Machu Picchu at sunset, after it had "closed" for the day and was emptied of visitors. Snorkeling with turtles in Hawaii. Hospitality in rural Mexico that was generous beyond anything I could have dreamed. Seeing fireflies for the first time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a good cook and a great swimmer and have been known to teach both. At once.

In the past I've been a lifeguard, a TA for a college English class, a Spanish/English language interpreter, a cook, a stand-up comedian (briefly, quitting after some onstage bombs)

Canada, Mexico, Peru, United Kingdom
