About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To escape the rat race and experience as many things as this world has to offer

ABOUT ME

Nothing makes me happier than to be with people who make me laugh and have great stories to tell or weird ideas. I like science, business/marketing, burlesque dancing and keeping fit. I also have a real interest in food/health. I am adventurous and am a bit of a hobby junkie.

PHILOSOPHY

Personally I don't think people take enough time to appreciate just how many great people and places and activities the world has to offer. Different foods, cultures, languages and experiences. So my philosophy would be, You don't have to be what people expect you to be, forge your own path.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Ive hosted a few people in Ireland and met up with lots of couch surfers for coffee but never actually surfed a couch myself. Hope that changes soon though :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Ive hosted a few people and they have all been great experiences :-)really nice people. Meeting up with people for coffee etc When I first moved to Ann Arbor has been a life saver :-)

Interests

I used to do a lot of horse riding, its something I would like to get back into.I'm into science (Neuro/ behavioral and food mostly) but not a total nerd I hope :-/. I like being creative,business and marketing, traveling (obviously)and burlesque and all things vintage. I also love cooking/ baking. I'd love to get into dress making, I even bought a sewing machine but never took lessons to its gathering dust Im afraid.

Music, Movies & Books

I love any movies that are funny or kind of quirky/indie my favorite at the moment is 500 days of summer and Amelie. I also love Jim Carey an all his movies. I like psychology books and random facts books,not really into fiction.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I walked the great wall of China, ran a 10mile road race and sang in a talent contest (eek) :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

Lets see, I would love to learn how to improve my sewing. I can teach others English, basic guitar, cooking/ Baking.
