About Me


Don't worry. Be happy. Love life.


I am a single mother of one bright two-year-old, and we share our life with four goofy dogs. I have often been described as a quirky, goth-like hippie-ish tomboy. Strange though it may be, I suppose the reasons behind it are valid enough. I'm a native Philadelphian, and thoroughly enjoy all the beautiful aspects of my city: the architecture, the history, the parks, the arts, and our Fightin' Phils. I would love to show you, too!

It is my lifelong dream to produce all the healthy, organic food my family needs and offer the same opportunity to other families, as well. It is my goal in life to become completely self sufficient, live off the grid, and escape this society of consumerism and waste. Ask me about it!

My mind is currently occupied with a cross-country cycling trip with my toddler and four dogs. The logistics are going to be complicated to say the least, but I've got lots of planning to do!


I'm trying more and more to enjoy the life I live, rather than endure it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the hosting experience! It's always a great day when you cross paths with a CouchSurfer and can exchange stories. When I can, I like to meet traveling surfers in the city and help show them around, even if they have a place to stay.


Music. Photography. Animals. Nature. Hiking. Fishing. Sports. Biking. Gardening. Cooking. New people.
