About Me

I'm a passionate, devoted and energetic person. Have traveled and lived around the world by myself on a shoestring budget. Love chatting politics, human rights word happenings, finance, career, and more.

Also, I just started a podcast called Love, Travel +Other Drugs covering things like an app for heartbreak, life as a digital nomad and the neuroscience of cannabis. Would love for you to check it out:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Where would I be without Couch surfing? This website is a hub of beautiful people and I will FOREVER be thankful for the friends around the world I have made. I couch surfed for 4 months in Brazil and met the most beautiful people I could have wished to meet. They will be friends for life, but there is always rooms for more.


I love experiencing new cultures, learning as much as I can, and helping people. Also interested in: hiking, volunteering, learning to cook, yoga, meditation, bike riding, basketball, swimming, anything related to water - rivers/ lakes/ ocean, movies, documentaries... basically everything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My little project with the underprivileged and orphans in Asia made me realize what life is really all about.

The other: my second short documentary got 8+ million views and was mentioned by a federal judge overturning the NYPD police practice I investigated

Most recent: reporting court side for the Olympic Games in Rio in English, Spanish and Portuguese. I covered beach volleyball for the Olympic Committee and had my videos and interviews sent to live tv stations in 256 countries.
