About Me


to become an evocative citizen of the world


I am a former attorney, turned museum educator and ceramicist. Traveling is such an essential process for me and I love soaking my senses in new sights and smells and meeting the wonderful people who inhabit these places! My new goal is to learn enough German to read Rilke on my own...


I believe in the magic of language and the power of ephemera -- always remember how big and small the world is.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted in Budapest (via roommate's account), Boston, surfed in Italy, London, and in Japan -- had various great experiences with couchsurfers through friends.
