About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"

ABOUT ME

I do fantastic, artistic face painting for adults and kids, direct theater and also do some marketing for theater and dance performance companies. I love to meet new people and learn about other cultures, and just have amazing experiences in general. I'm easy-going, open-minded and potty-trained too!

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live I suppose. Reach for something higher and nobler, question everything, search for meaning everywhere, have fun while doing it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have so far hosted two Germans...am not partial to Germany, thinking perhaps Germany is partial to me! Also hosted from Turkey and attended some meet-up groups.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Enjoyed an amazing couple of weeks with Neslihan Ozdemir in Turkey in 2010, who since then has couchsurfed here in NY on my couch for one month, and then became a permanent roommate for over a year. She is now one of my very closest friends.

Interests

Have lately taken an interest in being outside and finding natural beauty in the city....going for runs and walks, swimming and rollerblading...love theater, hanging out with friends and having a few drinks, museums and architectural sites, eating really great food, reading, Dancing, annoying my siblings,
cooking, worrying my mother, yoga and traveling, not necessarily in that order.
