About Me


Traveling, exploring, learning languages, photography, yoga.


Hello, I work at Legal Aid and help connect low-income communities to healthcare resources. My true passion in life is travel and do it as often as I can! I've backpacked in many many places and hope to backpack in many more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've stayed with a few people and finally have a couch so people can visit me too.


I love photography, meditation and yoga. I'm interested in herbal medicine and traveling to new places. And making new friends!

reggae and funk

Some books that I read recently and loved include Sometimes a Great Notion, Oracle Bones and At Play in the Fields of the Lord

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Although some of the more valuable experiences in my life have taken place with family and friends, I have been very lucky to backpack alone around NW China and to spend several months traveling through West Africa.

Teach, Learn, Share

Cooking! I love to cook and learned to cook lots of different dishes in both Italy and the Middle East because I have family there. I am especially enthusiastic about pasta and shakshuka.

I also love hearing people's perceptions of their own countries.

I'm also ALWAYS looking for an opportunity to use my French and Spanish.
