About Me


Exploring Melbourne!


I love beaches!!! I try to chase after summer as much as I can.

I grew up in San Francisco, but now I live in Melbourne and I love it here!

I really enjoy sunshine, food, and the company of good friends.


"What's the worst that can happen?"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't been able to host yet since I have been moving to different apartments every few months. Hopefully in a few months, I will be able to have a flat and you can crash on my couch!


I have couchsurfered in Queensland! It was a blast!


I love dancing, rock climbing, trying new food places, taking classes in language, dance, art, and music. I also love finding swimming holes, camping, backpacking, and going on road trips.
