About Me


Cooking, dancing, eating and laughing my way through South America until I find myself a new home :)


Im easy going, passionate, open-minded and love new experiences.

My passion is food and feeding people. I have a background in business but am mostly interested in social entrepreneurship and building a sustainable food system. A few years back, I founded big farmers´ market in my community filled with organic farmers and food producers, kids food/cooking education programs and wicked music! My goal is to reduce any sense of elitism around organic food and create a fun, relaxed and educational space in the community.

Right now, I´m on a mission to find a new country to move to during the winter months. So far Ive travelled from Colombia to Brazil by bus and have loved every minute of it.


A soul filled with gratitude makes everything glorious! Fill your life with beauty, kindness, compassion and happiness and spread it every where you go.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm back in Canada after my travels in South America and would love to show people around Toronto. I'm free for a coffee and help others with English and practice Spanish as much as possible.


Cooking for people and learning to cook everything I can! Motown, soul and reggae music fill me with happiness. Meeting new people is a passion of mine and I love social situations.

My work/love is around accessibility to sustainable (and delicious) food sources.
