About Me


Work is love made visible.


I'm definitely a bit of a neophile, always looking for new experiences and adventures! I grew up with travel-loving parents and am now learning to explore the world on my own. I just graduated from a Masters program for Nursing at UCLA and doing my best to see/do/eat new things when I'm not hitting the books!


No great thing is created suddenly. There must be time. Give your best and always be kind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing for now, hope to host in the near future when life settles down a bit!


Amazing time with 2 generous hosts in Istanbul and a great weekend in Sequoia National Park. Ready for more!


My biggest weakness is food. I enjoy cooking and love surveying different types of cuisine every place has to offer.

I like to seek out what is unique about every location, finding what I wouldn't be able to experience anywhere else. Of course there will be the main attractions, but I also relish going off the beaten path a bit. The greatest feeling is discovering something special all on your own.
