About Me


Experience everything I can. Live life. Meet people. Inspire others. Go crazy.


I have grown up all around the world, and am currently a lawyer in Wellington, New Zealand, for the next few years. I love to travel, in 2012 I did a 3 month trip through South East Asia, England, Spain, Tanzania and parts of the States before settling down in San Diego for a semester abroad. I am outgoing, friendly, and love meeting new people, eating new foods and seeing new things. I love to run, last year I did 5 half marathons and my first full, and am about to tackle my second full marathon.


I believe that everything happens for a reason. I would never change anything in my past, even if I regret it, because it made me who I am today.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently participating through surfing and meeting up with other CSers.


No experiences yet!!! Traveling the East Coast and Midwest that will be my first time surfing!


Running, travel, snow (I ski but want to learn to snowboard), eating, baking delicious goodies, hanging with friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sunset in Halong Bay - most beautiful sunset of my life.

I went on a safari in Tanzania this year...I will never forget the first time I saw a zebra out in the wild. It was far away and hiding behind a tree, but it was awesome.

Skiing in Chamonix.

Walking the streets of Paris in the rain, eating crepes
