About Me

I laugh at almost everything!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a great place to find people who love differences - both at home and away.


I like reading, traveling, languages, and plants. I like walking, biking, sailing, and trains. I like learning new languages and new people!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Nils Frahm, 5nizza, Rancid, Alina Orlova, Natalia Lafourcade
Books: I like books about feeling out of place.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I learned to ice skate on a frozen river between Sweden and Norway - back and forth, and back and forth. And we had a picnic with hot chocolate!

Teach, Learn, Share

I like learning languages - they are the perfect balance of puzzle, math, and memorization. I studied Russian literature, centering on the author Sergei Dovlatov.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I make some mean chocolate chip cookies and some nice PB&J yogurt (really).
