About Me

Newspaper photographer, nice lady, awesome veggie chili maker

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Traveling, meeting new people, seeing new things. It's the best way to get to know a place. Sometimes the couch may be a bit small, lumpy or in somebody's living room but the people are always the best.


Photography, human rights work, volunteering, riding my bike, art, travel, cooking, being a nerd and making stupid jokes

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

dove into the Atlantic Ocean on New Years Day in below freezing temps *three times*, attended a giant pillow fight with about 1000 other people, rode an elephant, rode the subway in my underwear twice (with 1000+ other people), got an ear infection from swimming in the moat in Chiang Mai, ate bugs, drank the water and lived!
