About Me

I'm a 26 year old New England native who now lives in Wilmington, NC. Yes, that's the land of Dawson's Creek.
.... #TeamPacey, though.

You are likely to find me: listening to music, cooking, painting, writing, with a glass of wine in my hand, devouring coffee, eating, talking, laughing, creating art, doing some random DIY project, working, and spending lots of time with my fur-baby, Igby!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I was a sophomore in college, I made no vacation plans for spring break. Instead, I wanted to go spend time with my grandmother, who had been diagnosed with cancer. A little over a week before my break, she passed away. I was obviously very upset, but I decided that instead of going home to mope and cry, I was going to go on an adventure. I CouchSurfed for the first time to Orlando, Florida (Hi, James!!) and fell in love with the community of CS!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook!
We can paint together.

There are so many things I have yet to learn. I am confident that there's something you'd be able to share with me that I haven't even thought of.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, wine, good conversation, & a puppy who will love on you like no other.
Also, (of course) a couch.
