About Me


to actively appreciate all the amazing people, courses, and creative arts in NYC this year!


i like constant change and the ability to travel often... which is partially why i decided to become a bilingual speech-language pathologist... it's needed everywhere and flexibility is a must!!!
I dabble in a lot of things, but would like to get more serious about any or all of them - including macrame, wire jewelry-making, mbira, trapeze/silks, photography, cycling, gardening, cooking tiramisu among other italian goodness,,, dancing salsa... currently i am spending free time in yoga classes, playing mbira, barefoot running (w/VFFs), dancing, and making occasional pairs of earrings... and biking into the city will happen very soon now that it is warmer!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have not "couchsurfed" before... although i have certainly stayed in couches of friends of friends, or hosted friends of friends as well, both in the states and abroad.... but I really would like to start participating in this organized form of sharing homes and experiences!!!


dancing, reading haruki murakami, playing mbira, contact juggling, aerial silks, trapeze, poi, travelling, learning languages, doing volunteer work, jewelry making, yoga, martial arts, free concerts in nyc!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

swimming with a juvenile Whale Shark off of Isla Holbox in the Yucatan - just barely swimming around it before it caught up to me, and then becoming mesmerized by his right eye- such depth and tranquility...
