About Me


What does it mean to live...


I live my life with a fearless curiosity! I love travelling, and everything it inspires so literature, films, art! And I like to spend my time exploring something, anything! A library, a mind, a city, and forest. I'm told I'm quite passionate and energetic. Love DOING things. Anything. Sport, swimming, walking, biking. Oh! And I dance Argentine tango, salsa, zouk, bachata and such like. I love raving.

I'm living in Italy at the moment.

I do like to Party. But I also love really homely experiences. I haven't seen many families on couchsurfing but if there was I'd be doing this a lot more.

According to the Jung test I am...
risk taker, easy going, outgoing, social, open, rule breaker, thrill seeker, life of the party, comfortable in unfamiliar situations, appreciates strangeness, disorganized, adventurous, talented at presentation, aggressive, attention seeking, experience junky, insensitive, adaptable, not easily offended, messy, carefree, dangerous, fearless, careless, emotionally stable, spontaneous, improviser, always joking, player, wild and crazy, dominant, acts without thinking, not into organized religion

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed a little over Europe and NZ, meet some interesting people. It seems many a person has sent me an email of travelling advice! Oh! I love it! Please, frugal travellers alike! If I have been to a place that you are going don't hesitate to ask me! We are put on this earth to help and be helped! I have been known to host too...


I would definitely say couch surfing has to be one of the most interesting things I have done. I have slept formally on six couches and each of them was an entirely different experience, quite literally. I have also attending the odd event here and there.


TRAVELING, meeting interesting people, fashion, dancing, long nights, malibu, sleeping-in at home, seeing the sunrise in new places, DANCING, the economy, power struggles, writing, feeling things, literatures, endless possibilities, art, film making, languages.
