About Me


Finding a need in the world and fulfilling it. Many to be done simultaneously, and some taking entire lifetime. There is a certain desire to aleviate the strain on humanity, wherever that takes me will surely be an adventure


I am a strong believer in that we determine the current state to exist in, and although life is not always as we plan, a few minutes of patience makes a world of difference. We must all strive to break the mold, societal behavior is predetermined; as man has not been able to predict earthquakes, how can we predict the behavior of others.

Within the short 32 years of my life, I have certainly had many lives, and all of which I am so, so thankful for. I have had many experiences and look forward to many more.

PHILOSOPHY and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live


Having lived in the UC Santa Barbara Co-op, many couch surfers have been hosted before I had known of Couchsurfing. It's an organized network of what has gone on for some time with a traveler exchanging gratitude service for a roof and a hot meal.

I have found myself surfing after graduation and am thankful to have gotten to know the kind hosts better as friends.


I enjoy creativity so much, within every medium. Culture and tradition fascinate me to no ends, especially healing practices and methods. The stars, animal and plant cells, chemical reactions and volcanic eruptions. Tree climbing and mountain exploring

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked through cathedrals and mosks of Constantinople, Moscow, and Kiev.
Jumped off of Southern point of Hawaii, as I plunged into the waters the ocean floor cascaded down 100+ ft, and contained colored creatures of breathtaking beauty.
Headstand on the highest point in the continental U.S.

Teach, Learn, Share

Progressively learning and would love to share knowledge in gardening, plant needs, soil composition, cooking Russian and Vegan food, sewing, painting, Russian language and Folk tales, dance, yoga, snowboarding, potty training! I can teach a few songs on a guitar, and would appreciate being taught/corrected on my strum; can always use art tips, cooking tips, sewing tips. Would love to share stories of lands far away, as well as hear tales of distant lands.
