About Me


Quit my job. Traveling the world.


Like most folks on CS, I love getting to know different cultures, preferably by meeting the locals. I love trying different foods (I'm a vegetarian) and wine (in moderation!). I love to read and can waste whole weekends curled up with a good novel. Photography is my current artistic pursuit but I have much to learn! I meditate and (try to) work out regularly. I've been known to enjoy the occasional philosophical debate. I most recently lived in New York for 6 years with some months in Zurich, Switzerland. Before that I lived in Miami and Brazil.


Love is the answer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm looking forward to meeting people and giving/getting travel tips. I've met some great people on CS, from locals and travelers to hosts. I haven't been able to host due to my current homeless status!


I got a tour of Lyon from the wonderful Chloe Chav and hung out with Brad Cossey and his crew in Iceland! I most recently spent 6 weeks with Val Pliskin taking the Trans-Siberian from Moscow through Mongolia down to Beijing.


Poetry, photography, art, theater, reading, YouTube.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - mostly independent/foreign language
Music - rock; folk; things played in Brooklyn. I'm going through a big Kings of Leon phase for some reason.
Books - so many, so little time! I'm always reading something...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteering in Trinidad & Tobago was pretty unique.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know lots of funny YouTube channels so I can point you to those. I can teach basic photography or how to start a blog on Squarespace. I'm also versed in finance (finance-finance and personal finance) if anyone's wondering how that works, and I've helped some friends get out of debt. I'm also a pretty master packer, which I learned from my mom.
