About Me



Now Moving into New Orleans, the Big Easy, The Crescent City!!

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 used to do big sales in NYC for Virgin records & miss selling music to peeps! I have been selling Art/Merchandise and working as a PA in NYC for the time I have been away from Couchsurfing.

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!!


There is no try..only do or do not / Jump in and swim already!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had fun having poeple stay in NYC with me. I am was 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 was jumping around the States some. Now I am looking for a place in NOLA.


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. I like to cook & talk & go out with new people!
