About Me


Meet amazing people, eat delicious food, dance all night, learn languages, get dirty, get lost, get found, and keep in touch with everyone along the way!


I'm a people person :) I'm also obsessed with traveling. My favorite place to go is Latin America, and I want to do a lot more traveling there. I have two awesome dogs (which makes it hard to travel sometimes...). My favorite things to do are dance, dance, dance, go swimming, go to concerts, go to unique/cool/interesting bars, learn guitar, paint & draw, and go for walks. I'm pretty good at Spanish, and trying to get better, and after my recent trip to Rio, I'm also trying to learn Portuguese!


Pura Vida

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to start off just offering to hang out for a drink or coffee, or to show you my city! :)


I'm new!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to speak English, to read Hebrew, to dance Hula, to dance Tahitian dance, to find somewhere to dance salsa/bachata/merengue every night of the week in Philly, to hula hoop, to sew, to love my dog.

I'd love to keep learning Spanish, Portuguese, guitar, and almost any other language or type of dance. I also love learning about different types of art, and learning to plant flowers/herbs/veggies.
