I'm an artist soul working in advertising. I'm a painter (both on canvases and bodies!) and have fallen in love with fiber arts as well. I'm always seeking out new travels, new sights, hoping to find the next spark of inspiration.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've surfed and hosted a handful of times and made wonderful friends along the way.
If you've graciously lent me a couch, I will help out in any way I can. Walk your dogs, do the dishes, make you banana bread, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books
I'm currently listening to things like Beirut, Nana Grizol, Bouncing Souls, World/Inferno, Gogol Bordello...I'm really all over the place.
Amelie is my favorite movie, but I love the animated movies that have been coming out lately: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Up, etc.
Jonathan Safran Foer makes me giddy. The Time Traveler's Wife blew my perception. The Unbearable Lightness of Being made me rethink everything.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hundreds of people gathered in Times Square to blow bubbles. I've never been more in love with humanity.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to make things with your hands (macrame? weaving? anyone? Beuller?) I can body paint you. I can show you around the best food in Queens. I geek out about cameras and know some cool science experiments!
