About Me

My life is made up of many interests hobbies and lifestyle choices. I just got back from traveling in Europe and Western Africa and seeing where life takes me from day to day...week to week...and on. I search for friendships, knowledge and skills to add meaningful experiences and help direct my search for spiritual understanding and a sustainable lifestyle. I enjoy spontaneity and find few things more fulfilling than genuine conversations with people I meet whether planned or entirely unexpected :)

I have many hobbies which I have tagged in the section below.. but just to give a general idea; I love nature (hiking, swimming, gardening, sustainability...etc), Music (I love to sing and am learning to play guitar), languages, social dance, sociology, mycelium (foraging for and learning about mushrooms) and meeting new people. Lastly, I am an acro-yoga enthusiast and am always looking for friends to share/learn with!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on Couch Surfing to collaborate in these communities and alternative economies. I love connecting with individuals from other countries, I believe this urges us to overcome our differences/biases and realize we are in part all the same :)

Music, Movies, and Books

For music I love many different genres. I grew up playing and studying classical music (both instrumental and choral) however my parents exposed me to various genres of folk music (including contra, english country, old time, and scandinavian) which I've picked up bits of as well. While classical music has made a significant impact on my life, I listen to many different genres of music and love being introduced to new ideas and artists.

I additionally grew up learning folk music and rounds by ear which I love to share and pass to all who I meet.

A few books I´ve found to be significant: 'The Name Of The Wind' by Patrick Ruthfuss, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Behind The Beautiful Forevers, and Merchants Of Doubt by Naomi Oreskies and Erik Conway.

While I intentionally avoid watching copious amounts of tv, I loved The Intouchables (both for the music and content). More recently I hooked on the tv show Game Of Thrones.
