About Me


Meet new people, eat new things, drink around the world!


28-year-old ESL teacher; I occasionally run away from home to teach and travel.


“The journey is part of the experience - an expression of the seriousness of one's intent. One doesn't take the A train to Mecca.” - Anthony Bourdain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new friends, going for drinks, hoping to crash with some folks soon!


Best CS experience was a tiny Mexican place tucked into Sighnaghi in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Would never have known about the place if some fellow CS-ers hadn't lured me out there for margaritas and veggie fajitas!


Reading, cooking, eating and drinking, television, movies, theatre, concerts, salsa dancing, belly dancing, jazz dance, and cats.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: I'll watch just about anything, but I love period pieces, sci-fi, and comic book movies the most. Favorite films include L.A. Confidential, the Blues Brothers, anything Marvel's produced, Pacific Rim, and the original Star Wars trilogy.

Music: Eclectic, to say the least. I love artists from Janelle Monae to Vienna Teng, Doomtree to the Gaslight Anthem, Kanye West to Frank Sinatra.

Books: Favorite authors include James Ellroy, Neil Gaiman, Madeline L'Engle, Stephen King, George Orwell, and Lois McMaster Bujold.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Exploring the ancient cave-towns at Uplistsikhe, Georgia, a hundred feet above the Mtkvari River.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: English, where to find good brunch places on the East Coast, how to read Tarot.
Learn: Anything! Show me how to do something you're good at.
