About Me


Visit new places and appreciate what each locale has to offer, while also giving something of myself to each experience.


I am independent, but cherish the relationships that I make with quality friends. Traveling is one of the best ways for me to get some variety in my life and expand my understanding of new places and people.


I try my very best to enjoy the present while learning from the past and preparing for the future.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to explore new cities, and staying in residential areas is the optimal way to do this - whenever I travel, I keep an itinerary of everywhere I eat, go out, visit, and I can offer suggestions on what I've done.


I did my first couchsurfing in Sevilla, Spain and had a great time!! Since, I've had the enriching experience of staying with some amazing people in Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso, Mendoza, and Granada, Spain! I have also "couchsurfed" independently - staying with friends in Buenos Aires, Mexico, Spain, and all around the U.S., and I love having a home to stay in and interesting people to have coffee with in the morning. While living in Buenos Aires, I found some of the most intriguing and open people who will be lifelong friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a whole list of all of them, but it really depends on my mood.

MOVIES: Russian Dolls, Amelie, Good Will Hunting, Inglourious Basterds
MUSIC: Acoustic, world music, latin music, flamenco, reggae
BOOKS: I'm usually reading 1-2 books at all times.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Quetico - the Canadian side of the Boundary Waters on the border of Minnesota and Canada - just amazing wilderness.

The Northwest of Argentina - an incredibly magical and authentic area!

Teach, Learn, Share

In the past, I have taught dance (contemporary, ballet & salsa). I also practice yoga quite extensively. While I'm not the best cook, I can always help prepare meals and do a great job of cleaning! (Some might say it's a little on the obsessive side.)
