About Me


Learn to love to learn and love.


Me? Moi? I'm just trying to discover and experience as much as I can before...well, before that "final vacation".

Most recently, I've been obsessed with Misfits.

I love meeting new people, I love hearing stories and I love sharing experiences. I'm big into photography, still pretty amateur but I like bringing my camera wherever I go. if I meet you, I'll probably want to take a quick, impromptu portrait of you. Why? Because I want to create an entire wall of the people I've met that inspire, dream, believe, fight, challenge and love.

I'm shy at first, but as you get to know me I just get sillier. I love to talk about many things including music, novels, queer politics, and I rarely get offended. I think dialogue is most important to the learning experience and to censor self-reflection or curiosity is to suffocate life.


Nothing is worth doing if it doesn't make you nervous.

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”
— James Baldwin

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm all for showing people around town and chatting and meeting up for coffee!


I'm a surfer in training. Once I'm done my undergrad, I'm hitting the road.


Music, music, music! Films, eating (ha!), writing theatre and watching theatre and talking about everything under the sun. I love being outside, especially by the ocean. Walking, hiking, exploring cities. I am a huge fan of dancing. HUGE.

I'd like to ride a motorcycle someday, but I'm too chicken at the moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been to Paris--my first big excursion on my own. Stayed in the city for a month, between my first and second year of University. After that, I began traveling a bit more and decided to discover my own country first, and so I have been exploring the west coast every summer ever since.
