Sailboat DIY & keeping things interesting in the Bay Area
I've met incredible people while making my way through South America, Europe and east/west coast USA. I returned from a six month trip at the start of 2016 and want to continue to meet travelers and broaden my horizons as I settle back into "normal life" (if that exists!)
I'm active, curious, politically leftist and love learning. I bike everywhere and try to do something new every day, practice foreign languages as often as possible, dance tango, eat avocados, shop second hand, pet cats, stand while reading, ect. Sometimes I feel like a little kid with all the things I want to learn and do.
I do my best to show visitors off the beaten path and as a surfer I'm happy to have my host lead the way - I'm usually game!! If you're visiting and want to make a connection to the Bay area for your very own, drop me a line and share your thoughts.
Live simply and always carry a pen.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
From Barcelona to Boston and Barcelona to Brasilia & beyond -- CS communities have made my time in new places infinitely better.
50+ sunscreen, romance languages, talking to strangers, BIKES, sailboats, public health, art, politics, writing, videography, exploring cities (ect!)
Music, Movies, and Books
I *especially* like reading fiction that takes place in places I travel and music that fuses different cultural traditions
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hiking Morro da Urca to watch the sunset over Rio de Janeiro, motorcycle rides around Lisbon and Porto
