About Me

Current mission - Bask in the Swedish summer, finish my thesis.

About me - I have been in Sweden for a couple years studying, and I'm in Visby for the summer - finishing my thesis and being with my boyfriend who I've long been apart from. I love bikes, bicycle touring, learning guitar and singing, repurposed things, general artsy frugalness and attempting puns your 80 grandfather might make?

Personal philosophy - When encountered with a trouble/inconvenience - If no one is going to die, let's just laugh about it. :) Be kind, everyone is fighting a battle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've couchsurfed three times: Boston, Vancouver, and Charlottetown, and the generosity of the hosts humbled me. It's a great opportunity to meet friendly people all over the world and share an experience together.


Nature, finding good local eats (gluten-free!), recycled and repurposed things, architecture, rock climbing (indoor and outdoor) and cutting hair based on a hilarious book I have from the 70's called "how to cut hair". So far 8 out of 8 of my clients have been satisfied!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling from southern Germany to Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could share a little knowledge of biking, bike repairs, and climbing. I've also been told I'm a master of salads and sandwiches. An unprofessional haircut. :)
