About Me


While Life Can Be Tough, I Want To Laugh and Find The Joy In It


I love movies, concerts, hanging out in coffee shops, animals, history and traveling. I love learning new languages and hearing about people's stories


I have come a long way from who I used to be and am still growing, but I try to be good to others, explore new things and think the best of people. I like to be around people who are easy going and make me laugh and hope to be the same to others. I enjoy volunteering as it teaches me new ways of thinking or dealing with different situations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a handful of surfers now, but I haven't surfed much


I love to read, travel, go out for a drink with friends, go to concerts, try new things, and explore restaurants, coffee shops, etc that are off the main path.
As far as traveling, I enjoy the hidden gems of the town/city rather than the tourist traps. I like to experience the culture and people, but I am a sucker for history museums, especially history from the 1900's and on

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies! I really enjoy a good action or spy type movie (Bourne Identity type movies or From Paris With Love, Italian Job, Hanna, etc). I really enjoy music, especially indie, some pop and almost anything European (I love Stromae!). I enjoy reading, but I have a wide variety. I enjoyed "Eat.Pray.Love" but my main love is biographies or stories from history.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to a women's surf camp in Hawaii and that was a really great experience.
I traveled around Europe by myself for 4 months. An amazing experience!
I lived in France for 6 months, just so that I could learn the language

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn how to be more loving, giving and caring. I would also love to learn how to laugh at myself more.
