About Me


Learn more about myself and the world through other people and traveling.


I like art, movies, music, traveling and meeting new people. And other stuff. I love to laugh and I watch a lot of TV shows. I like to be busy, but it's sometimes nice to do nothing at all. I like big cities and I am an aspiring artist. I wish I was more spontaneous and I love the smell of cinnamon. I like walking around just listening to music, though I do it too seldom. I like going to concerts and festivals.

I'm done with my Liberal Arts undergrad, my main focus was on film studies, experimental film production and photography. Some day I hope to work at a film festival and do fine arts photography on the side. I want to learn German and Portuguese fluently and travel to places I've never been. I want to live in Copenhagen and Berlin and Melbourne and Toronto and Lisbon and Prague and Wellington and and and. I want to get to know more of you.

I enjoy having fun and I get along with most people?


I don't believe in one meaning of life. I believe everyone has their own meaning of it, you make your own. The meaning of my life is to enjoy it, have fun, learn. I do that by traveling, meeting new people, new cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't been able to host in New York, but I'm hoping I'll get to it wherever I move next (most likely Oslo or Copenhagen).
