About Me


To explore museums, learn history and dance in as many goth clubs as possible, in the US and Europe.


I'm a Canadian girl living in L.A., with a penchant for goth. I bike in protest of the car culture here, but work in online advertising to pay the bills. I study local history in the hopes of writing a book someday, and blog professionally for a major metro blog site, as well as my own. I'm kind of a freak, but I'm happy that way.


You only get so many years to live life. You may as well do and learn as much as you can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Trips with Girl Guides (Girl Scouts), trips with CODEPINK to DC, trips with friends - wherever night finds me, if I can find a couch, I'll take it.


Protesting the war in Iraq, playing adult kickball, supporting progressive politicians and political movements, Los Angeles history, history in general, roadtrips, cheesy Americana, British history, goth clubs, biking & cycle culture, blogging

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have just seen a lot of America, which I think is pretty amazing in itself.

Teach, Learn, Share

History, especially that of L.A., the City with No History.
