About Me

A dreamer and an explorer. Naturally introverted, but open-minded and learning to wear my heart on my sleeve and take risks a little bit more each and every day. Not very good at small talk (hehe), but passionate about storytelling (ask me for one!). Love to love, love to share, and love to celebrate!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My place is currently not big enough to host, but I can show you around Los Angeles! I'd also love to visit you in your home city/country as well.


My first, and so far, only, couchsurfing experience was in San Francisco. My friend and I started off by grabbing dinner with some CS members - and now friends - Kevin from SF and Paulo from Brazil. We then attended a CS event that evening at a bar where we got to meet the local CS community! That evening we stayed with our first CS hosts, Paula and Tyler, who are both circus performers. We had the opportunity to join them their freelance gig at the California Academy of Science "Night Life" event, which was loads of fun.
