Hi! My name is Kayleigh and I'm a professional singer and actor from NYC (kayleighpowell.com for evidence). I recently dropped everything, sold my furniture, quit my jobs, and struck out on a solo backpacking adventure for the next year (or until the money runs out). I'm also an aspiring travel blogger, over at permanentescape.com
I grew up in a military family, so I was bitten with the travel bug very young (12 homes before I graduated from high school), and never quite recovered!
Politically active/ angry feminist/generally concerned about social justice issues, racism, police brutality, LGBT rights, etc.
Currently only looking to stay with other women- a little leery about staying alone with guys after some stories I've heard. Maybe this will change as I get more comfortable with surfing.
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
I want to have the most authentic experiences possible in the places that I'm visiting! I'm also trying to make it for a full year living on my savings, so I'm being as thrifty as I can be. I hope to meet interesting people, and make some new friends to share this journey with. Finally- trying to expand my comfort zone as a solo backpacker!!

Morceaux de musique, films et livres
Music: I am an unabashed lover of all things 70s/80's pop, punk, and new wave (New Order, The The, XTC, Talking Heads, Adam & The Ants, Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, The Cure, OMD etc). 90s MDMA club bangers, angry '77 punk, anything that fits on the soundtrack of a guy Ritchie movie, theatrical punk/rock, and lyric driven ethereal fairie pop stuff. Also musicals.
Books: Irving, Mitchell, Palahniuk, Tartt, Tolkien, Vonnegut, Bradbury, Huxley, Heller, Pullman, Rowling, and Welsh. And graphic novels too, particularly Preacher. I have a Fight Club tattoo.
Movies: Labyrinth, Fight Club, Shaun of The Dead, The Departed, Lord of the Rings, The Fall, Snatch, Birdman, A Clockwork Orange, Snowpiercer, Let The Right One In, Only Lovers Left Alive and generally all things Tarantino, Wright, Scorcese, Fincher, and Park Chan-wook are safe bets.
Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue
I worked for six months as a singer on a cruise ship sailing around the Caribbean. It was basically like being on vacation for six months with the added bonus of being paid for what I love to do. I got to go skydiving, snorkeling, to Chichen Itza, swim with dolphins, and so much more!
Enseignez, apprenez, partagez
I'm very open to language exchange situations- I'm happy to help people practice their English, and I definitely want to improve my French and my (very) bad Spanish. I'm also happy to work with people on video editing, social media management, and basic web building. I love kids, and pets, and am game for helping out with either!
I would love to find other people who are creatives, or interested in the arts, to learn more about the scenes of other countries/cities.
