About Me


Graduate from Cambridge


I own a strawberry farm in Ecuador but am currently pursuing an MPhil at the University of Cambridge. I work in policy-making where energy meets climate. Originally from Louisiana and Ecuador, lived in Mongolia for 3 years as well. Open to nearly all types of people.


Be kind to everyone, do the right thing, and don't forget to enjoy life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i try to travel when i can- sometimes i use the couchsurfing website.


i once had a couchsurfer disappear for 4 days in paris- he showed up in my apartment with an italian couple that he had met at a 4-day rave.

if you go to raves- please invite me too.
