About Me


learning turkish!


Hello! Merhaba! I am a capoeirista; a musician; a gardener; a youth worker; a bicycle enthusiast and amateur biologist. I'm from Minneapolis MN, and am in Turkey until March of 2012. My partner Erik has a Fulbright teaching English here. We live in Afyonkarahisar.I joined Couch Surfing to meet interesting people in Afyonkarahisar... I would love to practice speaking Turkish!!!I also plan on travelling around Turkey. I would love to stay with other capoeiristas throughout my travels, or just join you for a class or roda. In my travels throughout the United States and Brazil, the global capoeira community has been incredibly welcoming. In new cities, the roda feels like home!Erik also uses this couchsurfing account. He is from New Jersey, and we met at Reed College in Portland, OR. He studied classics, and has a passion for Ancient Greek and Latin. He speaks Turkish very well!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate in the world by making sweet harmonies.


I am new to CouchSurfing! But I have met couchsurfers at friends' houses. We usually cook a big meal, talk about where we are from.
