About Me

I am kept busy with my classes, internship, and work + I live in a tiny studio apartment with my fiancé, so I'm not really able to host right now, but I'm more than happy to answer any questions about the Berkeley area!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Pablo and I have enjoyed hosting people in the past and helping them get to know Berkeley. A lot of the people we've hosted were planning to come to Berkeley to study so we try to answer all their questions and give sound recommendations! We were also hosted by some really fantastic people during our travels in Europe.

I've / we've been hosted by wonderful people in Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Spain, France and here in California - thank you! - and I found two great friends through CS when I lived in Switzerland for a year as an au pair. We've hosted people from Taiwan, Austria, Japan, Australia, Germany, and around the US.


Travel of course, reading, good food, the outdoors and nature, genealogy, dressing up my cat...

Music, Movies, and Books

I count Harry Potter as my favorite book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I survived eating lutefisk - spending a month in Norway was amazing and hard to beat.

Teach, Learn, Share

Realistically, not very much since I'm pretty busy. I could get you started with the basics of a genealogy project, that's my biggest hobby at the moment.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belize, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Monaco, Norway, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In
