About Me


I work to travel to soak in new cultures and connect with new people.


I'm a fun loving, free spirted designer that loves to travel, meet new people, try new foods, dance to hip hop, reggae salsa and electronic dance, learning to surf, practice yoga, meditation, biking, hiking, take photos, organic farming,cooking healthy meals, and striving to be a more open minded grateful person every day!


The power on meditating on your desires, affirmations and gratitudes is invaluable to heightening the capacity to live on a higher frequency. To be open, positive, cultured, well traveled, educated, humble and have a great sense of humor will take you further than ever imagined!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel and take the most joy in meeting/staying with the locals to get a more intuitive insight on different cultures.


Once in Santiago, I CS Chile with a very nice guy who cooked organic meals , and showed me around as we shared our travel experiences, cultures, and musical interests. It was the best way for me to see Santiago!
I also CS with the most gracious host in Brazil during Carnival. I engrossed me into the festivities for the entire week and if it wasn't for him I would've never got such an insider view of the culture and beautiful people of Carnival.
I once again CS in Goa, India with my dear friend now who I call "The King of Goa" because he took me all around and introduced me to a ton of people. It was a great insider view to the land.
