About Me


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 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 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

I'm traveling for a few days in August and would love to host any experienced cat lovers who would care for my furbabies while I'm away. I have a pull out sofa in one room and my bed in the other. I do prefer hosting females, but I'll consider anyone that loves cats. The dates I'm away are August 16-20/21st. I could likely host one or two people just before that to meet you before entrusting my cats with you. Message me if you are interested. Thanks!


Art, theatre, books, writing, movies, TV, swimming, travel, yoga, rock climbing, beaches, photography, crafts, being around kids, eating chocolate, collecting maps (for art!), conversations, music...

Music, Movies & 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 stories, my art and performance talents, how to create a simple vegan meal, and tips on child care :)

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Canada, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Spain, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State, Wales
