About Me


happy to share NYC with those lucky to pass through . . .

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was once an exchange student to new Zealand, when I was 16, and would like to have a nice cultural exchange several times a year. I have traveled a lot and enjoy meeting new people from different places.


I have had the pleasure of hosting some cool people since joining. It has been really fun and I look forward to meeting more people. I have also couch surfed in Paris and met up with some couch surfers in Peru.


New York, (it never bores me), design, art and architecture, wine, vegetarian food, going out with friends, getting into trouble, (but not too much)and travel, of course! I also see a lot of theater and I like to go to the Moth and stand-up shows.
