About Me


I'm in the process of moving to Asheville, NC! I will be pursuing certification in massage therapy and herbalism. excited to learn about our bodies and their relationship to our environments, to get in tune, and to help tune up.


I grew up in Southeastern Minnesota and have been living in Minneapolis, MN for the last 10 years. I studied dance in college and have been a part of the contemporary dance and performance art scene in Minneapolis as well as studying and performing internationally. Growing, cooking, and preserving food is a huge passion of mine.

i dance, i read, i farm, i ponder, i eat, i stroll, i drink, i ask, i listen, i move, i feel real good.


I'd like to live somewhere between my happy medium and a little too much. Teach me something I have to work at.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Intimacies of a city, shared transnationally. My favorite way to get to know a place is with those who love it!
While couchsurfing is "free," I'm not interested in people who use it just for that. I believe we have a social responsibility to engage with one another, learning to respect and love each others cultures. I am more willing to host those who make it apparent that they care about who they are with and where they are.


dance & choreography, biking, somatic moving & healing, sweet potatoes, fermented foods, queer theory, bright furniture.

Music, Movies, and Books

Milan Kundera, David Foster Wallace, Big Thief, Talking Heads, Arcade Fire, Joanna Newsom, The Smiths, Michel Gondry, Death Cab for Cutie, Clarice Lispector.
