About Me


Make the rain go away... Or find an umbrella


I can be either very shy or very adventurous, I'm always looking forward to my next new experience and the next place that I'll get to travel. I'm intelligent and down to earth and I care about other people and tend to take care of those around me. I'm a biology nerd but I'm taking time off from school to live and travel abroad while I'm young and have the opportunity to do so - I refuse to look back 50 years from now and regret the things I didn't do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far surfing only, but hoping to host when I have my own place again


Surfed with:

Christophe B, Geneva, Switzerland
Miguel Salva, Palma de Mallorca, Spain
Mickael Clerc, Lyon, France
Benoit De Vilmorin, Paris, France


Obviously, travel, travel and more travel. I also love food - food is awesome and I'm down to try anything once. I like to cook, I like to read, I like to craft, I like the outdoors but I'm not really "outdoorsy". Really, I like to do most things as long as the company is good, I don't care where I am or what we're doing, as long as the people are good it's going to be a good experience.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest and not liking it as much as the previous two books, but I'm not putting it away either.
Music - I'll listen to just about everything, although I prefer music with lyrics in a language I can understand because otherwise I can't sing along
Movies - A lot of the classics, otherwise something that will make me think, laugh (wit over stupidity) or eat a pint of ice cream

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sunsets in Africa. Seeing my friend's work in a Manhattan art gallery. Working with Cheetahs. Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. Helping birth kittens. Seeing the girls I au pair for learn something I taught them.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't know what I can teach you, but I'm happy to learn anything and everything... I think
