About Me


let creativity and spontaneity reign


I'm a lover of poets, an ambitious dreamer, an actress, an adventurer, a runner

trying to let my impulses guide my decisions; stop over-thinking, a little less conversation, a little more action... but oh do I love good conversation, to think and talk and talk about thinking..


Lived in the US, Spain, France, Germany, Denmark, and Italy

Studied Lecoq technique for theater creation at Helikos in Firenze. I am a mask performer, a shape-shifter, a writer/director and a clown.

I live to perform onstage. Theatrical expression is my passion.


It's impossible for me to know my place in the world if I haven't seen it. That's why I travel. To see the world so that I can better understand my personal place within it.

When cooking dinner, start with onions, garlic, and mushrooms and you can't go wrong.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted some, advised a few and surfed a whole bunch.

I've surfed in Sevilla, Granada, Marrakech, Montpellier, Paris, Brussels, Copenhagen, and Dresden and made some very good friends along the way.

I've hosted a handful of fantastic people and several intriguing characters in my New York college dorm.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

jumped out of a plane with a dude in a parachute strapped to my back-- to be honest, the whole ordeal was very bizarre..
