About Me

I'm a truth-pursuing, dancing adventurer. I enjoy music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Waking Life -- and enjoy the beach (since I live near it). I worked in politics for awhile and now work in tech for a SaaS company. I'm a Reiki Master, former yoga teacher / Thai yoga masseuse.

I get a lot of requests -- so apologies if I just answer Yes/Maybe/No without a fuller message. You are still beautiful.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet new people from different cultures or with different interests. And, generally trying to be hospitable to other human beings.

Hopefully, some turn into friends. One of my couchsurfers is now a great years-long friendship.


I do yoga, dance, meditate. I like hiking and biking. Going on ridiculous adventures and having probing conversations.
