About Me

Originally from the SF Bay Area and recently graduated from grad school in Boston, MA. I've moved a bunch of places the past year for school commitments, so I'm use to packing light and being a bit of a nomad. Currently I'm taking time off to celebrate finishing school before I have to focus on studying for my big scary exam in the summer. Until then, I'm care freeeeee!

Outside of my professional endeavors, my hobbies tend to take me outside. I spend a lot of my time dreaming and planning camping and backpacking trips. Most recently I picked up rock climbing and it's been a so hard/so much fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For added adventure and to meet great people along the way. :) Intending to host once I'm in a living situation that supports it.


I try to make a point of getting outside regularly. I've been hiking a lot and getting more serious about backpacking. I have an ever growing Google Doc filled with places I want to go and have been camping more regularly the past year.

Music, Movies, and Books

Spirited Away is my favorite movie because it's so child-like and the soundtrack is on point. Haven't read much recently given my recent student status.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I relied on hitchhiking in Yosemite to get back to my car. Best first experience EVER.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach respect. Learn appreciation. Share passion

Basically, just be a decent human being. It's never bad to fall back on being a good person, no one gets upset about that.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Conversation over beverages. I have a degree as a physical therapist/physio, but haven't taken my boards I COULD provide some professional opinion regarding a physical ailment, of course, at my discretion.
