About Me

I've lived in Pittsburgh for going on three years, and I'm constantly surprised by how much I love it. Come hang out!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have surfed enough couches to know it's definitely my preferred way of travel, and I try to open my house to guests as often as they ask in Pittsburgh. I have also used CS to find friends in new places, and it has worked every time.


I am interested in education, adventures, math, languages, swing dancing, running, camping, social justice, large open spaces, building community, spicy foods, reading, solid conversations, being on the road, being challenged, and figuring stuff out.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: anything singable or danceable or beautiful or live.
Recent obsession: my boyfriend calls it "80's electro-pop revival."

Books/Authors: varies week to week, but I read a bit obsessively.
Recent recommendation: The Martian, or Ready Player One

"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor." Henry David Thoreau, Walden.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been really lucky to live in some beautiful places and do some amazing things. Specific highlights are hard to pinpoint, but I am always happy on top of recently climbed mountains, after swimming in rivers and watching the sunrise.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy introducing people to swing dancing, and talking about education. Math is also up there, but I try not to force it on people. I also know lots of riddles/puzzles/games. My favorite thing to do with hosts/surfers is cook. I know very little in the kitchen, so it's easy to impress me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would love to cook a meal, learn about what you do/love, or just chat. I am cool with being on my own if you're busy, but would love to stay up discussing random topics until 4 am if that's what happens. Also: I'm clean! I promise.
