About Me


South and Central America in 2015


I am passionate about the world, all people, animals, the outdoors, languages, food, coffee, and laughing.
I've lived in Madrid, Spain, and Melbourne, Australia.
I travelled through Southeast Asia and it was an incredible experience. I got Dengue Fever as well as a pain in the ass fungal infection, and now I am afraid to return, although I loved each country I went to and would return in a heart beat.
I spent a month in a tiny town in Costa Rica, where I really had to slow down and learn the art of doing "nothing". It was the best month I've ever spent.
Every time I travel I am blown away by how genuinely awesome the people are that I meet. I am so inspired by everyone I have met, even for a day, because they all have the courage to get out and live.


The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. -Confucius

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted in Madrid, Kirkland, and Melbourne. I enjoy CS meetings and arranging meet ups with other travelers and locals. I also love showing people around my city, and even though I can't host now, if I have the time I would love to meet up.


My favorite part about Couchsurfing is being able to experience a city through the locals. You meet the most incredible people through this site, and I get to call many of them my lifelong friends.
I have surfed in California and Oregon-US, Porto,Ovar, Lisbon- Portugal, Marrakesh-Morocco, Madrid, Barcelona-Spain, Rome, Italy.
I've been to meetings in Melbourne, Marrakesh, Porto, and Lisbon, as well as met up with random surfers in Madrid and cities I've visited.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to just about everything. I love a good show! My favorite movie is Amelie.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Riding in a stuffy little van through the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara desert, riding a camel to a tent surrounded by sand and stars, and waking up to breakfast on a sand dune. Also, swimming with a baby whale shark!

Teach, Learn, Share
