About Me

I'm visiting Oaxaca, Mexico from July 16th-24th, 2021. I don't plan to couchsurf the entire time (I have at least one hostel reserved) but I would love to meet people and get recommendations on things to check out.

I love music, dance, exercise, LGBTQIA+ culture, performance, gardening, nature, cooking, history, museums, art, hiking, and I'm pretty open to discovering new things. I'm also excited that I will be getting a tattoo from a local artist on the 22nd.

I'm an open book and I'm respectful of spaces should someone host me.

My "day job" is therapist to kids and adolescents with autism. Some of my hobbies include beekeeping and woodworking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a great way to meet people and learn about local culture. I love being introduced to new experiences.


Art, dance, nature and outdoor activities, musical performance, graphic novels, and museums.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can do some basic cooking and baking. I know some yoga and I can talk endlessly about bees.

Weird skill I have: fire massage

What I Can Share with Hosts

For those curious about the fire massage, here is a youtube video that I just found.
