About Me

I try my best to make things easy for people around me and I am easily entertained. I enjoy simple things and simple interactions. When I travel, I like to do things such as walk around the city, check out local coffee shops and cafes, community spaces and coops, attend local Food Not Bombs, visit a local brewery, go on a hike or a weekend trip out of the city, check out free community events. I also love staying with locals and spending time with my host and their friends to really feel the city.

I live with my boyfriend. If you like board games and/or beer, we will all get along great :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've found that couchsurfing is a great way to meet people that I enjoy hanging out with from all over the world. I've hosted, couchsurfed, met up with people to show them around or be shown around, I've gone to CS events in cities where I've lived and cities where I've traveled... It's just perfect for so many things - getting to know a place more intimately, making friends when you've moved to a new place, community building.

I haven't hosted since before CS went though a lot of changes, and I too have changed. But let's give this a try again!


Interests in this household include biking, yoga, hiking, magic the gathering (not me), beer, sometimes wine, movies, food, vegan cooking, exploding kittens (the game), scifi shows, board games, meditation, djembe drums, general silliness and probably a bunch of other stuff
