About Me


I'm ready to crawl out of my little cave and discover the world.


I spend my days helping people find their creative side. I often prefer a sketchbook to a camera. I live in Oak Park, IL, home of Frank Lloyd Wright and have been known to give pedicab/ rickshaw tours of my hometown and Chicago. I am raising two boisterous boys.


I have no clue. Let the mystery be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy getting together with the Chicago CS group. I don't host anymore due to my busy life. Be sure to check out the Chicago group and events, there is always something fun to do in this town.


I have surfed only the most exotic places: Memphis and Duluth...


Drawing, painting, playing with clay are part of my job and my life. I prefer to be active: Roller skating, playing on the monkey bars, or running keep me moving. Seeing the world from a bicycle is important to me and it is my preferred mode of transport, along with walking and cross country skiing.
