About Me

I like chai tea, climbing up snowbanks, dominating in battleship, playing hide and go seek in ginormous buildings, cuddling cats, overwhelming fits of laughter, unexpected hugs, poetry, blanket forts, all night conversations, quiet sunrises, imaginary worlds, honesty, challenges, green tea ice cream, Texas Hold 'Em, happy tears, quirky necklaces, letters in the mail, impulsive traveling, turning pennies heads up, confusing myself with existential thoughts, babies, drum circles, stomping loudly, human faces, analyzing dreams, social experiments, breathing music, screaming in the car, dancing everywhere, climbing mountains barefoot, clear communication, singing out of tune, and crescent moons.

I love anyone and everything free spirited.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm just a small town girl with a backpack, too many dreams, a pretty terrible sense of direction, and a really wonderful sense of adventure.

My intentions here are to make lots of very interesting friends, follow the magic of the universe, and have many new experiences.

Hope to meet you soon!


Writing and reading poetry, silence and sign language, clown school, early childhood philosophy, astrology, non violent communication, contra dancing, hiking, biking, running, hula hooping, travel, crossword puzzles, anagrams, scavenger hunts, love, connecting with strangers, and cats.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was the first person in my family to go to college... and I graduated with high honors... and became a teacher. I'm pretty proud of that.

Teach, Learn, Share

I try to be considerate, keep an open mind, and practice conscious love & clear communication in all interactions.

I like to listen, I like to talk, I like meaningful conversations where everyone is learning something new.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I really like cleaning... especially dishes.
And I've been told I'm awkwardly charming. I think that's a good thing.

Maybe I'll bake you cookies.
