About Me


Following my heart


I'm a passionate, devoted and energetic person. Have traveled and lived around the world by myself on a shoestring budget. I recently moved to Rio de Janeiro because my heart was telling me to do so, after finishing up a documentary in NYC. Fell in LOVE with Brazil but just got an awesome job in Portland that's going to send me to DC in September so I'm following the adventure!


Love is not a feeling, it's a way of being.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet friends, host and surf! I feel like the people here are down to earth and share a lot of common interests and beliefs about the goodness that really does exist in the hearts of people worldwide.


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 surfered for 4 months in Brazil and met the most beautiful people I could have wished to meet.


I love experiencing new cultures, learning as much as I can, and helping people. Also interested in: the stock market (I know, odd right?) The Daily Show, volunteering, real estate, learning to cook, yoga, meditation, bike riding, hiking, swimming, anything related to water - rivers/ lakes/ ocean, movies, documentaries... the works!
