About Me

I love music, bikes, food, cooking, fun, dancing, sweetness, beauty and life! I play the euphonium in a New Orleans-style brass band. I work at an academic archive where I get to handle really amazing historic documents from people like Susan B. Anthony and Harriet Beecher Stowe. I also work part-time at an invention camp for kids! My specialty is helping kids make musical instruments out of recycled materials.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I occasionally host and surf on here...
Every experience i've had via has been totally inspiring and magical! one of my favorite couches surfed ended up with me being interviewed on the radio by one of my childhood heros! yes!


i love to listen to and play music, cook food, collect old things, watch films and ride my bike everywhere!
