About Me

*** I'm moving to La Rioja, Spain for 9 months (Oct-May) to each English. I'm super excited!**

Easy going, adventurous, outdoorsy, love photography, love traveling, volleyball, cycling, gardening, learning Spanish, Hiking, Cycling.

I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area. I've lived here most of my life (it's very hard to leave). I traveled in South America for a year and it was an amazing experience. I have a strong desire to live abroad to really get to know the local culture and people.

Algunos de mis intereses son jugar al voleibol, aprender español, ir de camping, ir en bici y la fotografía. Tengo ganas de mejorar mi español!

I love photography - particularly landscape and time-lapse. Photography and travel fit well together.

I enjoy living my life to the fullest, looking at the positives, meeting new people, dancing, experiencing other cultures and having amazing experiences.

Always have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting people from all over the world. I believe that the Couchsurfing is one of the best ways to travel; you really get to know a place and the people because you are instantly connected with friendly locals that share a love of meeting new people and understanding cultures.

Lately, I've been hosting more people in Oakland and it has been wonderful. I really enjoy having people from all over the world and showing them how amazing the Bay Area is. They bring me energy and enthusiasm and help remind me about all the exciting things to experience around here.
