About Me


Simple: to lead the most interesting life I possibly can.


I was born in a small town in the US, but at the age of 17 I moved to Argentina for 7 months, which changed my life. I returned to the US, went to University and studied something I love for 4 years - literature and writing. Now, I live in Prague and work as a Creative Copywriter for a company that designs educational video games for kids. My real love is writing fiction, though. When I'm not spinning fictional worlds, I love trying new restaurants, going out for quality drinks, exploring used book stores, traveling, and walking - lots and lots of walking.

I have never Couchsurfed before, but am incredibly excited to try it out.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing things I've done in my life is waking up at 4 AM and hiking up a mountain near Machu Picchu. We were so high up, the ruins were barely visible through the clouds over them. 8 years later, I still can't get over how beautiful that moment was.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn about the local life in every city I visit. Having lived all in 3 different countries in my life, I know how different a city can be if you break free from the tourist side of things. It changes the lens through which you view the city and the culture by extension.
