About Me

To not lose my sense of wonder

Im quirky. I love laughing until my cheeks are sore and my stomach hurts. I have a thing for sweatshirts, sandals, and sunglasses (and apparently the letter "s"). I love Roxette. I have an unquenchable thirst for seeing the world and doing my part. I'm passionate about environmental issues, but I promise not to shove my tree-hugging philosophy down anyone's throat...unless of course you want me to. Im also notorious for solo dance parties...Im pretty freaking good.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Unfortunately I havent had the means to host anyone quite yet. But I've done a fair bit surfing, some ridesharing, and dabbled in some CS meetings throughout Europe and Oz.

60% of the time, it works every time.
