About Me

Hi all! I’m a recent college graduate working and living in Burlington, Vermont! I'm very passionate about protecting the environment, its people, and living sustainability. My main focus is on food systems and sustainable development, thus, I have a committed relationship with food - both growing it and eating it. I'm a vegetarian (trying to be vegan) so I love sharing and learning meat-free cooking skills. I've worked on organic farms for a few years, currently work at a food hub (sourcing local, sustainable, and nutritious food) and am always looking to expand my knowledge of farming and permaculture. I love biking, photography, 80s/90s hip-hop, yoga and political activism.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting people, sharing stories and experiences, and learning from the locals. I'm always willing to share what I know. And you can’t beat an economical and sustainable way to travel!
