About Me


To live in the best way I can, actively involved in making the world a better place, while having fun as well.


Active in peace, justice, environmental work, love to birdwatch and get outside, love connecting people with each other. Activa en cuestiones de paz, justicia, y asuntos ambientales, me encanta observar aves y estar afuera, me encanta conectarles a las personas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


in many groups, through the local community radio (KGNU), and through being as open minded as possible. I have hosted a number of people butnever have been able to stay with anyone.


none through this group yet!


Playing music, birdwatching, hiking, beadwork and other crafts, cooking delicious healthy food, biking, doing yoga, singing kirtan, playing with kids and cats (and some dogs but only the smart ones), almost anything outside, no TV. Tocar música, observar aves, caminar afuera, trabajar en chaquira y otras manualidades, cocinar comida rica y saludable, andar en bicicleta, practicar yoga, cantar kirtan, jugar con niños y gatos (y algunos perros pero solo los inteligentes), casi cualquier actividad afuera, nada de TV

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a couch, and a very small room where we can out up an inflatable mattress. Also, I have two cats, so it is not a good place for those allergic to cats. Tengo un sofá, y un cuartito pequeño donde se puede poner un colchón de aire. También tengo dos gatos, así que no es un lugar indicado para aquellos con alergias a los gatos.

Countries I’ve Visited

Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, England, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Spain
