About Me

I lived in Chile for a year teaching English and now I'm in Southeast Asia traveling and exploring a new corner of the world. I've always wanted to check out couch surfing abroad, I'm a great houseguest and I love meeting new people.
I studied Philosophy in university, love to discuss important/interesting/ridiculous topics.
Also, I am in the market for a quick motorbike tutorial....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To travel off the beaten path and meet open minded people and their couches along the way.


Living sustainability; how do we come together in living communities that support each other and support the earth?

I love climbing mountains, writing, salt water, different languages, wine, live music, yoga, spoken word, old trees and a bunch of other things that give me the feels.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to a lot of world music - love the Putumayo collections, especially anything from Mali. Shakey Graves, Lake Street Dive, String Cheese Incident, Odesza, Iron & Wine, Andrew Bird, Miles Davis...

Kurt Vonnegut is pretty awesome. So is Tolkien. So is Barbara Kingsolver. I read everything in my path.

Film, I like it artsy, usually. Or foreign. Or silly.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiked the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, Chile. It was the bees knees.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Love to cook, always down to make a feast. I can teach you some Spanish or English or I can teach you how to teach other people a language.

I will share my chocolate if I have any.
