About Me


Learning and teaching


I love many things, I love life.


Find something that feels right/kind/just and live by it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am here.


We have hosted couchsurfers in the past and had some great experiences. I have met up with people in foreign countries via CS.


Differing points of view. How to save the world. How to survive when the world ends. Foreign languages, music and social justice. Husband is in IT, he likes computers and hiking.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like novels, science fiction/fantasy, autobiographies, ethnography, history, many kinds of music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went horseback riding in Lesotho. The landscape was how I imagine the Old West, and the guides taught me how to say a few things in Sesotho.

Teach, Learn, Share

Give me some ingredients, however simple, and we'll figure out how to make a good meal. There is nothing more human than sharing a meal together.
Also, I am patient with my friends who are learning English--if you want to work on your English or French I would be happy to help.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My wit, stories about road trips

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Germany, Lesotho, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey

Countries I’ve Lived In

France, South Africa, United States
