About Me


To shake things up in my life


I am friendly, and a bit silly at times. Shy at first meeting, but you might not know it. Chatty, open, with my own opinions and respect for those of others. Culturally curious, always. I can be funny in an... outrageous? sort of way if you know me well enough.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted a few people last year, and hope to do so again in the future when I'm able. Right now I live with a room mate and hosting isn't ideal.


Hosted a few people so far.


linguistics, cultural and linguistic anthropology, puns, interior design, other design, sewing and embroidery, fermentation, bike rides, pilates and yoga (trying...), teaching ESL, languages,politics and social issues, feminism, SPANISH, alternative diets....
