About Me


Live life, enjoy, learn, love, laugh


I love to travel - but then again, who doesn't? What I love the most about it is the people you meet; and the stories they have to tell you.. I have a weird fascination with trees, and would spend my life walking through beautiful forests if I could! I devour books, am a bit of a film enthusiast, and enjoy drawing as well.. I love science, space, and humanity (most of the time..!)


Pure goodness,
Pure enjoyment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a few times, in Chicago, Boston, Montreal and Miami.. I can't host right now because I'm living with my parents for the summer. BUT! Coming soon.. I'll be able to give back to this beautiful community


Every single one has been amazing, I've made incredible friendships that would have never occurred had it not been for Couchsurfing! It's such a brilliant idea, and I'm so happy that so many surfers exist, with such a beautiful mentality towards life.. Instead of being isolated in a hotel room with no company, you are in a home with people who are willing to talk and help and build a community!


Reading, watching films, walking, cycling, eating unconventional things and living each moment to its fullest.. My greatest interest is people though, nothing is really better than a long conversation, sharing stories, experiences, knowledge.. It's amazing how you can learn from everyone if you're willing to listen
