I am a native of NYC, have traveled around the world and the US, always keen on building Community and connecting people, I am fascinated by what makes people tick.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love people, meeting people, and being a part of Tribes/Community that transcend age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual preference, geography.

And, as a launch UnL:abelMe, it helps to be able to also cut back on expenses, and supporting what we are up to.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a lover of all types of music, from old faves like Van Morrison and The Band to contemporary artists, spiritual music, singer-songwriters. I real mostly non-fiction and have always tended to be drawn to authors who seem to write for women, yet they resonate with me as well. I love great stories in films, character-driven films, like "The Shawshank Redemption" as well as documentaries.
