About Me


To be honest and genuine, to balance direction and openness.


I am a curious, free spirit who has a level head and an open heart.
I currently live in Switzerland, studying languages and history at a university in Lugano.
I feel like I have been on an endless search for balance in my life, and figuring out what the right thing for me is at the right time.
I think if we listen hard enough, we really can learn these things!

I have travelled a lot, sailed across the Atlantic, lived off of bicycles, climbed volcanoes... I am happy to share stories, but I tend to find others' stories equally or even more interesting.
Every human and landscape is full and intricate -- if you are passionate about something, chances are I will be happy or interested to learn about it.

I like to work hard, and I seem to always be challenging myself in some way.
I like to explore and share, while soaking in inspiration along the way.
I enjoy spending time with people, but am deeply fueled from being with nature and myself.


To lead a simple yet full life.
Be open to what comes.
Learn from yourself and from others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed in several countries and hosted some years ago while living in a big, happy house in Maine. I travelled some more, and am now living in Lugano for the year while studying.

I live in school housing so will not be accepting guests, but am always interested in meeting interesting people or sharing an adventure!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ooof, too hard!
Life is pretty miraculous in itself.

Teach, Learn, Share

-- they are all connected...

While here in Lugano, I am happy to meet up and go for a walk, share a drink, see what this place has to offer...

Or, even better, I am ALWAYS looking for a reason to get into the mountains, out on the lake, dig into soil. So if you are looking for a hiking/climbing/adventure buddy, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am endlessly excited to provide a helping hand, listening ear, or conversation in whatever projects you have going on in your life!
