About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Have fun, play, live, breathe, LOVE!

ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm a 36 year old woman in love with life! :) I dance Argentine tango, run, ride my horse, hike, surf, play and write music, create, meditate, travel!, cycle, rollerblade, yoga, play,...I choose to eat healthier, no drugs/drama/smoking. I love children and I myself have quite the youthful heart! I keep busy and balanced and live in joy and am sooo excited to continue learning, loving, and exploring! :-) Thanks!

PHILOSOPHY

Be baby, just be.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Through the years, while traveling, I always liked meeting new friends in new places, what better way than through Couchsurfing! I still have many worldwide friends that I've met on here!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfing has been an incredible experience for me! I've met some really beautiful people and am so grateful for the experiences that we have shared!

Interests

Love, life, Joy, Argentine tango, running, singing, surfing, meditating, angels, hiking, traveling, learning, playing, kids, music, nature, anything creative! I love the water, boating, sailing, and love adventure and spontaneity!

Music, Movies & Books

I love movies! Scary movies don't scare me though:) Music...sometimes it's the only way I can speak. I play piano, horn, SING, guitar, and love to write my own music. I'm an entertainer! Reading...mmmm. Yes. :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One amazing thing? Just one? I witnessed and assisted with the birth of my niece.

But there's so many more! :)

Attempted to surf a big-ass wave and nearly drowned:)

Hiked Kalalau in the rain with no food for two weeks

Camped Kauai for 5 months

Took a road trip from Pa to CA in 10 days by myself while on the master cleanse (crazy and amazing)

Matt Damon

Grown into an amazing woman

Teach, Learn, Share

I know and understand children, and parents, and am able to guide families through easier parenting and loving. I'm an excellent, experienced house cleaner! I can make any space beautiful with an eye for detail and beauty and love to organize things/spaces. Teaching Conversational English was fun in Argentina! I love music and can teach a beginner piano, voice, trumpet..I'm still learning guitar:) I care for and ride horses. Dancing tango, practicing Wing Chun, Shotokan, and baking chocolate cakes are just some of my specialties. :-)
