About Me


Seeing more of the world and finding my place in it


I just moved back to my native California after 5 years of living in Berlin. I love traveling, cooking, nature, camping, riding my bike, meeting new people, learning languages, learning about other cultures, music, movies, dancing, photography, napping in the sunshine and so many other things. . .
I can be kind of quiet when I first meet people, but I am just a very relaxed, easy going person. I love most of all to play practical jokes and have lots of good laughs with good friends :)


Life is too short for regrets.
Respect others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted, surfed and been to a few events. I hope to host more soon.


I have surfed and hosted and gone to many CS events. I can truly say that I have never had a negative couch surfing experience.


A lot of what was mentioned above in About Me. I am currently interested in learning more about nature, gardening, farming, meditation and yoga. I would like to improve my Spanish.

Music, Movies, and Books

Book: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
Movie: Good Will Hunting
Music: I like a lot of classic rock. For newer music I like a lot of indie. And of course 80s pop is fun to dance to!
