About Me


to see the world


I am originally from upstate NY. I then relocated to the philadelphia suburbs after highschool. I just recently returned from a 2 year leave of absence. I spent the first year teaching in Nassau, Bahamas. The second year I spent in Italy. I was extremely fortunate to discover couchsurfing during this time span because it opened up my word to wonderful new treasures!

I am very excited to continue to connect with people around the world. I would love to meet all of you!


Why not do it NOW??

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to all this but am having great times connecting with other surfers...and forming valuable friendships. I think this project is amazing! I have recruited many friends to the cs community and can't stop talking about it!


I have yet to experience a less than amazing experience with couchsurfing!


So many interests.... top ones eating/cooking, traveling, meeting new people, nutrition, working out, music/concerts... and now I can add meeting couchsurfers all over the world to my list!
