About Me


Creatively Wander


I enjoy the little things in life that slow us down just long enough for us to enjoy them. I enjoy hearing stories about travel. I love life and try not to take things for granted.I want to meet new people and explore myself and the world.

Culture, food, cinema, music, history, art and technology stimulate my mind.


Get lost! You will find things you never knew existed.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer assistance to travelers in my area and my roommates host occasionally. If messaged I will do my best to help out someone in need of information or advice online or over a drink.


I met some of my best friends on couch surfing.


Open minded conversation, learning about cultures, food and drink, art, green spaces, reading, biking, cinema, people watching, cooksurfing. I enjoy finding the hidden gems a city has to offer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Naked Philadelphia Bike Ride to promote bike safety and bring attention to how vulnerable bicyclists are to automobiles. It is what it sounds like, about a thousand people riding through the city naked on a spring afternoon. It was beautiful and freeing!

Teach, Learn, Share

The more I travel and throw my inhibitions to the wind, the more I learn how amazing people and places can be. With every trip I find myself in unknown territory and I am pleasantly surprised by the kindness of strangers.

I want to improve my Italian and knowledge of healing techniques of other cultures.

As people we shape our experiences in this world through our personalized lens. Allowing yourself to find happiness and enjoyment that is not dependent on others lens is a spectacle in itself.
