About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore and expand my horizons

ABOUT ME

Lifelong student, always in the know about cultural going-ons

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Couchsurfing helped make my European experience special because of the people I met during gatherings and my travels. Now that I'm back in the US, I'm promoting Couchsurfing among my friends that are planning trips.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I joined while I was in Eindhoven studying abroad and have since traveled frequently in US surfing and hanging out with my local peeps here in Portland.

Interests

I love traveling internationally and have been to 25 countries. In my spare time, I enjoy cultural events such as film festivals, art walks, symphony and a capella concerts. I also love to read and spend a lot of time on social media.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: a cappella, classical, folk, Latin, South African

Books: Too many to list--I'm on goodreads! Mostly nonfiction about medical or science topics these days though like some historical and science fiction as well. Powells is amazing though too many temptations :)

I volunteer at several theaters so I can see cultural events for free.
