About Me


Make news friends in Chicago


I studied abroad in Argentina and served 27 month Peace Corps Volunteer service in Thailand. I love learning new languages and learning about different cultures.
I work at a wonderful nonprofit that works with at-risk youth. I'm also interested in working with immigrants or refugees and maybe working internationally again.


Follow your dreams. Live your life for you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I meet CSers and hang out with them while I'm abroad. I host when in Chicago and go to events. My mom loves having travelers too and has missed them while I've been gone.


I have met the most amazing people through couch surfing who have hung out with me and showed me their city.

Music, Movies, and Books

I LOVE Latin music and Brazilian music. I need to learn some dance moves to go along with it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I white water rafted down an 8 foot waterfall. That doesn't seem that high but if you see the pictures it's crazy!
