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 love people! He speaks Portuguese, English, Japanese, and Spanish. We both love to travel and have fun!

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, Puerto Rico, and Morocco! It's been great and I love it!!
