About Me

Grew up in LA dancing, doing photography, running, and studying way too much.

Went to Stanford graduated '08.

Worked in journalism and traveled, then back to LA in 2012.

Since then been working on a novel. I also run my own business.

Moved to Lisbon in 2020 with Lacey, my puppy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I met my best friend in Madrid through CS. I've hosted/traveled on airbnb and CS has emerged and faded as part of my life since 2008, but have had some great connections through it. Actually haven't been a CS guest too often (twice in London), haven't hosted much (twice in LA, once in Haiti). Mostly just met cool people through it.
