About Me


I may (or may not) be in search of an awesome female couchsurfer to stay in my home December 18-January 5th and feed/care for my cats. They love people and they really love food. I have two cats and maybe one kitten. I'm away December 19th- January 4th. You can arrive earlier and stay later if need be, and if you aren't here that whole time I may have back up cat sitters. If you're interested please message me with your travel dates and tell me about your experience with cats. A fun cat story is welcome! If you don't mention the cats I won't reply (way too many requests come in). I'm only taking guests during these dates I'm away. Thanks!

RULE NUMERO UNO: Show up when you say you'll be here. If we agree on a time PLEASE show up at that time. I will not wait up for you. I work with children and I'm exhausted and need to rest or get up the next day. Please respect this.

Life's not about knowing the answers, it's about asking the questions.


Intelligent. Funny. Complicated. Intense. Silly. Creative. Loving.

I have two cats named Cha Cha (Chance) and Kismet. I found them outside my building two years ago just as my very first Couchsurfer came to stay with me. They changed my life and I think hosting surfers has too!
I currently have a foster kitten named Phoenix living here. He may or may not be staying long term.


I believe in not adding expectations to things because you will often find yourself very disappointed. By not expecting you leave yourself open to surprises and new experiences!
That said, please read my house manual when you stay here because I do have some rules! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sometimes I host people and someday I may need a place to stay. Also, it's nice to meet new people and hang out.

I ONLY HOST FEMALES. Please respect this and do not send me requests if you are male. This is for the safety and comfort of me and my guests.

Music, Movies, and Books

This would take forever, so I'll just say that I love Poe, Vonnegut, Salinger and Adams. I love the Coen brothers, Joaquin Phoenix, Gary Oldman, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon, sci-fi/time travel, comedy, drama, and certain romantic movies. I listen to all sorts of music and love discovering new music. I especially love jazz (Charlie Parker).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving. The view was amazing. The parachute went out wrong & we had to use the back up. It was a thrilling near-death experience!
Rock climbing too!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn to speak Spanish & French. REALLY learn them. And to play chess & piano. I can probably teach lots of things about art, acting, cancer... I can't think of anything easily taught by typing it out.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my crazy stories of a bank robber and mystery rabbits, my art and performance talents, how to create simple vegan meals, making up random songs about everything, and tips on child care :)
