About Me


Conquering the world, one jungle at a time


I grew up in NYC and I love to travel around the world. I'm particularly a wildlife enthusiast and I love going to National Parks in different countries. I am also really into urban gardening, including designing rooftop and balcony gardens. I recently completed my Masters degree in Environmental Science and I have a 4 year old yellow lab, shes a sweetheart and loves playing with everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am spreading the word! Love what CS is doing. Hosted over 12 times, and I've surfed in 3 different countries.


Surfed twice on my last trip to Costa Rica and I have had the pleasure of hosting many people when I lived in NYC and Florida. Love the CS Community! I've met some of my best friends through CouchSurfing.
