About Me

**Sorry for not responding to couch requests recently! This semester has been really busy. I will be check more frequently beginning in June**


To fill my passport before it expires


I enjoy traveling and meeting new people. Right now, I am a graduate student studying at MIIS in Monterey, CA.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I currently have a couch for the weekends (Friday-Sunday). I would be happy to show someone around with a steaming cup of coffee. I am interested in couchsurfing across the country.


I have surfed a few times in the US and in Eastern Europe. I love meeting the people who use CS. We're so varied but all share the common passion of understanding and have an appreciation of traveling.
