About Me




I love live music, Film and Food. I proved this by working at a movie theater for free movies, working at a Organic Market (in the East Village) for free food and by working in the Music industry for as long as I can remember.
I was lucky to Work at Kim's Video that was a staple of the East Village for over 20 years, but like many it has now fallen.

I read a lot and love to talk! I am open to new people and things. I am always ready to go out into the world, New York was the jumping off point!!

I am the head of ZoZo Children's Publishing. I started working more and more on my Stories for children and soon I will have a App! Many people from my travels have helped in one way or another. I have two CS'ers coming this summer to help build my App - ZoZo a Worldwide Reading & Language App for Children. They are going to live in my moms Basement (Nice really) and make a App that will keep my stories and teach language at the same time.

We are Crowed-Funding for this App Starting June 25th using Indiegogo!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had fun having poeple stay in NYC with me. I am have been traveling out of the country working on Organic Farms with WWOOF and Helping family's, farms and hostels on HelpX. I did some surfing along the way so I could fell like a part of the culture.

I have bounced over the pond more then once now. I will again be jumping around the USA the summer.


I have had a lot of people stay with me in NYC. Also I went to a good amount of the Couchsurfing events in NYC and the BCN. I think this spot is cool and it helps the world come together.
I have now been a surfer and it is great.. I do not know what is better the Hosting or Surfing?


live music, movies, books, art, writing, traveling, and more. I have taken a lot of classes before in woodworking, welding, upholstery, sewing, pattern making, and other craft classes. I have done a lot with painting, print making, and many different types of hands on art process.

Music, Movies, and Books
