~> Open mind, open communication, open heart.
~> Authenticity.

Carpe vitam! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS meet ups, language exchange, participating in discussions, surfing!
Hope to begin hosting when I have a place in the next couple of months! :)


LOVE CS! Have met some of the most incredible and inspirational people via this site and community. Places surfed: Czech Republic, USA, Argentina, Brazil, Suriname, Italy, France, Sweden

Many moments of exchanging laughter, meals, opinions on the world and culture, special life moments, personal philosophies, dances, stories, and souls. I enjoy growing from all these experiences - can't wait to do it again! :)


DANCING (to ANY kind of music!), singing, creating music, volleyball, healthy living, cooking & sampling new cuisine, nature, mountains! conversation, learning Language, photography, learning to understand & make the most of technology, writing (poetry & nonfiction), learning new skills and trying new things!

Music, Movies, and Books

ALL MUSIC! I grew up playing percussion and singing, which fostered an appreciation for everything. So I'm very open to all music from around the world...and since I LOVE to dance, I'll dance to anything as well. :)

Movies: action! then drama, documentaries, comedy, and some chick flicks... guess I'm pretty open

Books - nonfiction. Learning to read novels, taking suggestions! Really into Paulo Coelho!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- jumped off a 12m/36 something ft waterfall in Slovenia!
- slept on a stone ledge in Tuscany
- hiked a tall mountain trail barefoot in Floripa, BR!
- watched the moon rise & sunset simultaneously at Lions Head, Z. Afrika
- conquered a fear and picked up a microphone on karaoke night :)
- was filmed on Japanese national television eating as many bowls of wankosoba as I could handle!

Teach, Learn, Share

Je peux t'enseigner l'anglais / Te puedo enseñar el inglés / Posso te ensinar inglês / Sana inglizçe öğretebilirim / Ti posso insegnare l'inglese / Ik kan je engels leren / I can teach you English (or, even more English is more appropriate). I can also teach the majority of my interests.. (at least to my level of knowledge on them).

Would love to learn piano, guitar, more languages (sign languages too!)!!, new dances, more cuisines and how to cook w various herbs/spices, adventurous sports, games, and pretty much anything anyone offers to teach that I don't already know.
