About Me


I love to learn new things, whether it's about art (my area of study), different recipes, fun facts, history or other ways of life. I appreciate any advice on places to visit around your home, but I'm also just thankful to have a place to stay.

I volunteer quite a bit back home in a few groups (anti-poverty / climate change) so I always love a good deep and meaningful conversation about the world... But I'm just as happy to have a good laugh over the silly things in life!

I'm vegan and I like cooking a great vego breakfast for other people, if there's a chance to :)

I try my best to be respectful to other's needs so if you're not up for entertaining your couch surfer, I'm happy with alone time as I can quietly entertain myself for hours with a pencil and paper.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I visited Italy to study Fine Arts in an 8 week intensive and then had 3 months of spontaneous backbacking! I discovered couch surfing late in my trip and had a couple of fantastic stays in Berlin.

I LOVE the idea that you can meet someone and immediately be friends - there's no pressure to be anyone other than yourself with a stranger 👌

Music, Movies, and Books
