About Me


To travel the world whenever I get the chance to!!! I am still in university, and I work part-time as well. I plan to apply to medical school.


I am a huge independent and foreign film buff. I am always watching these films on my computer or going out to catch a flick when I have free time.

I am an extrovert, and generally a kind person. I enjoy different cultures, and have traveled all over most of Europe, and a few South American countries (Brazil, Panama).

My other interests are church (protestant), writing, enjoying life, and of course traveling! I am not happy if I am in one place for too long. The world has too many exotic places to see you and too many beautiful cultures to explore...


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just moved to NYC so we can check out the city together if you would like.


Family is important to me, so are my good friends. I like to spend time with my friends and family whenever I get the chance.

I enjoy eating great food, especially Italian, Thai, and Japanese.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I have seen in my life, is probably looking down at the city in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from Christ the Redeemer statue.

The most amazing thing that I have done in my life was packing up to live in Mexico City and work as an English teacher there.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach? Not too useful in that arena. I play the piano but wouldn't be willing to teach someone how to as it that would take a couple of years. ; )

I would love to learn how to surf.
