About Me

I am a traveler at heart, currently residing in the confines of New York City, so I need the energy of travelers around me! I live in The Pink House- we are like a family of weirdo-artists/traveler/grower-types, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. There are 7 of us sharing the home, and we love to welcome friends and visitors to share and add to our little community. We would like to have people interested in staying longer and sharing some quality time together. Please tell me something about yourself and why you'd like to come to The Pink House!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to share places with others, and learn about places from people who live there while I'm traveling. And caring for others and connecting with people feels good~
