About Me

I'm a music educator / choir director / jazz singer married to Beau Gilbert, a comedy writer / puzzle creator / science museum educator. We love board games, great scripted tv shows, puzzles and riddles, spy missions, and have recently gotten into rock climbing. We love getting to know new people by traveling and hosting.

GUESTS: We have a guest room with a full-size bed (also a puppet theatre and small marimba). If you're a fan of escape rooms, you can have a lot of fun here. Not to say we lock you in and make you escape! We just have an affinity for puzzles and riddles and may have woven some into our home...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love hosting people and being hosted by people! Getting to know new people is one of my favorite activities. Also, I like to travel without paying ridiculous amounts for hotels.
