To live consciously with compassion, openness, and kindness towards all beings
I enjoy biking around town, making vegan food, and showing people the spots where the locals hang out in Santa Cruz!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I was an active CS member during my stay as an exchange student in Maastricht, Netherlands from August 2010-June 2011. In an effort to give back to the CS community I now plan to host and meet travelers, and possibly attend some meet-ups in the area.
In June 2011 I returned to California from a 10-month stay as an exchange student in Maastricht, Netherlands. I was lucky to discover Couchsurfing while abroad as it enriched my travel experiences immensely! I surfed, hosted, and met up with other CSers in 10 countries that year. Although I am no longer traveling, I hope to be able to host and show people around my wonderful, beautiful, unique town of Santa Cruz!
