About Me


Destination Death or Better Days


Living life sober and cruelty free. Making the world a better place, one cupcake at a time.

I was born and raised in California. After graduating from UCSC I decided to move to Europe. Since then, I have traveled to many places and met lots of interesting people and I plan on continuing to do so for as long as I can.

I'm vegan and straight edge. That means I don't eat or use animal products and I don't drink alcohol or smoke or do drugs. That, of course, doesn't mean I don't like to have fun. Aside from traveling, I enjoy exploring nature, going on bike rides in the city, playing soccer, cooking elegant dinners for friends, playing guitar, going to shows... the list goes on.


My husband and I have moved to Las Vegas!


We have more sense than lies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS is usually my go to when I'm travelling somewhere with my husband and now that we live in a big city, hopefully we'll be able to host more people! (We used to live in a small town where nobody traveled to).


I've hosted a few times and surfed once. It's great! I love meeting new people and experiencing new places and things!


Veganism. Soccer. Animals. Riding my bicycle. Going to shows. Running. Cooking. Baking. Reading. Languages. Traveling. Cupcakes. Futurama. Sea Shepherd. Animal liberation. Playing guitar. Burritos. (D)anger(s).

I can teach you how to bake without using animal products and how to speak English :P
