About Me


Spread the love


My name is Lia; I grew up in a rural area in Northern NJ where we had a ton of pets on our 16-acre farm, and where I gained an extreme appreciation for nature and natural beauty.
I love being outdoors, I love hiking, swimming, running, sports, animals, camping.... the list could go on.
I attended college at SUNY New Paltz in New Paltz, NY and graduated in 2009 with a BA in Visual Arts.
I have also more recently studied hypnosis, shamanism, and sound healing, and offer my healing services typically on a donation basis.
I am super open minded, creative and love learning.

My current partner and I are both professional fire performers and perform regularly at festivals and private parties. We are also currently working on a project to build sustainable living structures, such as earth ships and hope to eventually be living in an off-grid eco community.


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.Fear is imagined; love is real.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have both hosted surfers, and have been a guest as well and have had nothing but amazing experiences! Some of the most beautiful people I have met have been through couchsurfing.


I've surfed two different couches and have had nothing but fantastic experiences.

Also have hosted several people in my home in Poughkeepsie, NY and loved the experience every time.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love all kinds of music, but especially classic rock and anything that sounds good.
Some of my past favorite books include The World According to Garp, Slaughterhouse Five, and 1984

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I jumped off of a 40 ft cliff in the summer of 08. As I was falling, I thought that I had not jumped far enough and was going to die, all I remember is seeing rocks beneath me and then opening my eyes submerged in green water.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an artist; I draw, paint, sculpt, and make videos, and am a firespinner/firebreather and eater, i can juggle a bit, and can play a little bit of guitar. I am also a hypnotist, and have dabbled in shamanism, sound healing, and reiki and can share some healing love with you.
