About Me


to educate myself in an effort to shrink this world


Curious, *un*ambitious,

Do whatever you want, but do no harm

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Met some cool people at Boston meetings, surfed couches in Central America and the Caribbean, met lots of great people and shared amazing adventures!! Hosted a few times in Boston and once while abroad.

It's always great to meet fellow travelers


Meeting you, and you... and you - and seeing the world in the meantime.

  • dancing
  • cooking
  • wine
  • traveling
  • hiking
  • languages
  • mathematics

Music, Movies, and Books

All of the above.

I love to read - it's been harder recently to carve out time. Best practice for learning Spanish was Paulo Coelho en espanol.. "Once Minutos" and a few others. Now that I'm in Colombia i have to check out Gabo. Historical fiction, fantasy and afro-futurism
bell hooks - All About Love

I love music.. i sometimes just need it as the backdrop to my life.. it makes everything exponentially better when music is on..

I'm scared of scary movies 😶. Into suspense, but my heart cant take terror and horror and aliens and zombies, lol.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Chichen Itza as a kid - before it was one of the 7 wonders... when you were still allowed to

cut all my hair off - so freeing!

walked from Guatemala to El Salvador.. long story, but more mundane than you'd think

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: cooking (basic dishes), 8th grade math, English, Spanish, maybe a little French, yoga (soon).
Learn: everything else... more cooking, languages,

I need to step up my salsa game! I can't always keep up with the spins 😅

Share: my home, friends, fam, insight into my funky little brain
