About Me


living and enjoying life!


After a year of adventures and fulfilling my wanderlust, went back to school and got my Masters. Back in NY now and looking for my next adventure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently looking for an apartment so no couch to offer, but happy to show people around NYC.. Lived in Brooklyn for 10 years and so have some favorite places to share.


Have met wonderful people through Couchsurfing since joining 2 years ago!


Love to explore new places and go for long wandering walks. Have worked in non-profits and am passionate about social change. Love art, books, movies, yoga, politics, farmer's markets, and New York City.
