About Me


I'm a twenty-three year old university student, who is quite pleased to be stationed in Bushwick, Brooklyn. I've lived in Gdansk, Prague, and Tel Aviv, and look forward to continuing my travels after I finish my MA at New York University. My hobbies include painting, swing dancing, reading, cooking, and accordion playing and my interests include old films, history, classical music, Russian and American literature, and the moon.
I travel to Warsaw almost every year (and will be back in January 2016) so let me know if you have any secret tips about it! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now, I would love to meet language partners, wayward travellers, lost tourists, interested parties, secret keepers, and storytellers of all sorts.

My roommates and I aren't always able to host, but when we are, our home is always queer and trans friendly.


Window staring, accordion playing, swing dancing, food eating, coffee drinking, music listening, poetry reading, streets wandering, oil painting, history pondering, train catching.
