About Me


Being awesome


I'm Michelle *now* from Hawaii! I was born and bred on the West coast, loved & lived in NYC but now live on a little island! I care about various social issues and enjoy meeting new people, dancing, trying new foods, venturing into small pubs, pretending that I can sing well, rooftop films, quirky theater, freak shows, comedy clubs, jazz clubs, generally being silly.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I'm a warm body for empty couches. I also meet tourists from time to time and show them around where I'm residing.


Three in Netherlands, one in France, one in Miami!


Lindy hop/swing dancing, pretending I can edit films, sewing, photography, progressive politics, learning more about space/time/physics, performance art, karaoking in groups.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Helicopter ride over Central Park, Rode in an elevator with Noam Chomsky after his panel at the YDS conference in 2007, met Cornel West after his panel discussion in 2007, taken Greyhound bus across country a few times. In general witnessing the daily goings on that is nyc, which is pretty damn amazing in and of itself.
