About Me

I’m starting a graduate program in journalism this fall in NYC. I'm from Atlanta mostly, and I’ve lived and traveled throughout Southeast Asia. Right now I’m training for my first half marathon!

I'm passionate about global affairs, clean living, food and beer, coffee, cats, yoga, hiking, films and television! I studied film at university and dabbled in filmmaking. I love trying new foods. When I travel to a new city, I must: read the newspaper, go to the art museum, eat street food, and see a movie.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have met so many amazing people during my travels, and I would love to meet more! Plus traveling is expensive. I want to pay it forward and help out other people who are wandering on a budget.

When I’m in the midst of traveling, I want to meet local people from as many places as I can.
