About Me

I'm a Houston based family photographer and got married last year to my favorite Brazilian. We're both crazy and adventurous and perfect for each other in that way. He speaks Portuguese, English, Japanese, and Spanish. We both love to travel and have fun! I'm excited to introduce him to the world of couchsurfing!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet new people and expand my worldview. I love helping people and learning about new cultures.


I've hosted people in my apartment in Houston and I've surfed in Brazil and Puerto Rico! It's been great and I love it!! I haven't been able to participate much in a long time, but I'm excited to start again soon and introduce my husband to it!


I love rock climbing, scuba diving, and helping people. Photography is my job and my hobby.
