About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Alegría!!

PHILOSOPHY

Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, I hosted several times at my apartment in Daejeon, South Korea. I have surfed in Asia and Europe. I've attended a handful of CSing events in my hometown of Minneapolis and hosted here as well.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Positive! Many of my most memorable travel experiences have been thanks to this great site!

Interests

Meeting inspiring people, dancing all night, sunrise bike rides along the Mississippi River, figure drawing co-op, yoga on the beach, reading, quiet mornings, meaningful conversation, gymnastics, cooking, studying languages, anything that's fun!

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Haruki Murakami, Jonathan Safran Foer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, A Natural History of the Senses, Barbara Kingsolver, graphic novels and art history nonfiction

Music: Manu Chao is always my #1; Minha Galera is the song of my heart! Bob Dylan, Tryo, Sigur Ros, Baths... so many more!

Movies: Baraka, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Spirited Away, Boyhood

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teaching the 36 best children in the world! (my class for 2 years in Korea)

Teach, Learn, Share

My favorite thing to teach is how to read and write in Korean (it's quite easy)! um, also English and how to draw a portrait...I'm constantly trying to improve my cooking skills, so I always love a cooking lesson! A lifelong goal is to be fluent in multiple languages....currently feeling Japanese!

Share? That's the whole point of CSing! Share knowledge, compassion, enthusiasm, a couch, a meal, a story.
