About Me


To get out there and meet as many wonderful people as I can! To be active, outdoors and generally have fun.


I am full of energy, I have a contagious smile : ) I have just been released into the wild from the years of Undergraduate study and I am ready to make as much as I can of the time in between college and the real world. I am passionate about current affairs, my degree was actually in international relations. I hope to travel for my entire life and in the immediate future to work abroad in any and every context.


I try to be open-minded and find the humor in things. But! I also want to conscious of what is going on in the world, politically, environmentally and so on.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can show people around Geneva, or meet for a casual tea/coffee.


I have had my fair share of backpacking experiences!


Everything. I am pretty open minded. I love the outdoors (of course, Im from PORTLAND!), biking, reading, listening to the best songs on repeat. I love the spontaneity of life and the gift of connecting with incredible people. Hmmm, I am a dessert person, that goes without saying. And I love laughing, yeah people with a sense of humour.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to name. I just watched L'auberge Espanole again. I am reading Wild Swans, a book about three generations of women in China...and the Zen of Motorcycle Maintenance. Music is all over the map, I love it all, maybe country a little less.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode my little motorbike along the rice paddies and jungles in Northern Thailand near Pai, haha and had to share the road with elephants. Good thing we got along well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am eager to learn! Phrases in a new language, to listen to someone's personal stories. I am working on my French language skills at the moment. But, I could teach someone how to really shuffle a deck of cards, how to fold a paper crane, ride a bike, climb a tree : )

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Austria, Cambodia, China, France, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Morocco, New Zealand, Portugal, Rwanda, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Uganda
