About Me


Self care, mindfulness, (working on) flexibility, ebbs and flows, taking a break but moving towards re-activation.


I am a vegan, feminist, queer radical social worker. I moved to the States 6 years ago and have been in Portland in the last two and a half. I work in a Street Outreach Team helping homeless folks connect with housing resources and mental health services, I organize things and volunteer in animal sanctuaries around Portland.

I live in SE Portland with my cat. I recently moved to live alone and will be happy to host some folks. My house is vegan and trans/queer so it's important you'll be able to maintain a safer space in the house.

I have a vision for starting co-op sanctuary for human and nonhuman animals and I'd like to talk about it with folks who are interested in similar dreams.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been to many places around the world and used different methods of traveling but love couch-surfing for its radical aspect, simplicity and human connection that is removed from currency exchange.


I have been using couchsurfing both solo and with a travel companion on-and-off while touring Europe. Some summers ago I used the website exclusively for a three weeks tour of Belgium, Netherlands and France. It was fantastic and I'm thrilled about future adventures :)

Since moving to the States I've hosted people both in Boston, MA and in Portland, OR, and frequently found those interactions fulfilling and meaningful, enriching my life with unique experiences.


I enjoy nature, hiking, camping, walking and biking. I am an activist and very moved by and committed to social change. I also enjoy reading, talking about deep stuff, exploring new territories, branching out and meeting new people. I love my cat.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a great vegan cook with a critical mind. Looking for people who can facilitate my growth, in many directions, or can teach me skills (right now mostly gardening and taking care of babies/elderly of all species).
