About Me

1. Send me a stay request, not a message
2. Read my full profile!
3. Have a filled out couchsurfing profile (not just 3 sentences)


My husband, Giuliano, and I moved from NJ to TX in 2016. We're basically a 2-for-1 special, so a little about us:
- If you've been to a Couch Crash in Austin, you've probably met us! I'm an organizer.
- We like to ride- he has a motorcycle and I have a scooter
- We have 3 dogs. If you come to our house, you will get very comfortable with face licks and back scratches. :)
- We've been to France, England, Italy, Norway, Spain, Ecuador, Taiwan, China, Japan and Vietnam.
- We run. I'm not sure how much we enjoy it, but we do it! :P
- We've been skydiving 3 times


I used to mindlessly end conversations with "have fun!" until I realized the truth in it, and that I ultimately hope to live my life following that motto.

Have fun. Always.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To learn, explore, create, and grow.


Production/TV, fitness and running, peeling Elmer's glue off my fingers (let's be real here, you love it too), spending too much time on Reddit, trying new beer and food, knitting, meeting new people, skydiving.
