About Me


To learn all that I can, see the world, and continue to be young at heart : )


Hello : ) I am young woman figuring out my place in this lovely world : ) I love to laugh and smile, dance and sing, and most of all meet new people, learn different lifestyles, and experience new places.

I have 7 brothers and sisters, one being my twin : )


Run down your dreams as best as you can. Always remember that you will learn new things from whomever you meet, and the more you know, the more knowledge and learning there is to gain in the future.

Keep your feet tappin and your self laughin'

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am still somewhat new to CS, I have been trying to do meet-ups, and now that I got a new apartment I am hoping to be able to host fellow surfers!


I have CS in Chicago for 2 days, NY for a few days, Helsinki for 4 days, and Sweden (with some Germans) for a couple of days.

Each time was something new and different, but I have always enjoyed my company and I have been told the same. I have always been invited back and have stayed in touch with my new friends.


The color orange, elephants, traveling, dancing, human thought, philosophical debates, communication, physical health, all things musical

Music, Movies & Books

I love to watch movies. I really like psychological thrillers, comedies, dramas, and ganagster movies like Billy Brasco and Goodfellas. Music- I love most every type of music minus heavy metal rock. I also don't enjoy all types of country but I have learned to appreciate where the artists' thoughts come from. My favorite is between classic rock and dance. I am much of a novel reader...current favorites include The Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller, Bossypants by Tina Fey, and most all of David Foster Wallace's work

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have walked on hot coals just to say I walked on coals.

Teach, Learn, Share

I tend to be asked a lot of advice when it comes to relationships or just needing someone to share with. I am also great at writing papers and love to help others with this. I have been a nanny as well as involved in the insurance biz (unfortunately) and can offer some advice in those . And, as mentioned before I work in a lab at Columbia so...if interested in psychology....
