About Me

California native and UC Berkeley grad now living in NYC. I work at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and am considering law school. I love travel and food and am very open-minded, inquisitive, and bubbly. My favorite thing to do is laugh. Best way to describe me: mature when necessary, but a kid at heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love good conversation and a good laugh, and host people who I can learn from and connect with in a meaningful way.

I'm here to build friendships, not run a free hotel. Your request should focus on why I'd have a great time hosting you AND why you think we'd get along well. Bonus points if you can show me how to cook your favorite dish 😉
