About Me


learning, loving, matching practice to theory


I’m working on a phd in English literature, which means I spend a lot of my time reading, writing, and teaching (or otherwise talking about books and ideas). I'm also a steward in the student workers' union, fighting privatization of the university of california and advocating for workers' rights across the system.

Outside of campus life, I love dancing, hiking, singing, cooking, and conversation!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed in France and Norway and also a bit in the US. This is such a great way to meet wonderful, amazingly generous and open and curious people, sharing meals and coffees and conversations. I love that this dispersed community exists, a genuine "sharing" alternative to "the economy."

I currently live in a space where I cannot host, but I hope to someday extend the same kind of generosity others have extended to me - and I'm always happy to meet up for coffee, beers, stories, hikes, etc, so let me know if you're in the bay area and looking to meet some comrade-adventurers!


I love to read and write, dance, talk, learn, sing, meet people, ask questions, eat vegetables, cook, hike, camp, climb.
