About Me


To open my heart to everyone and everything... Also, to teach my son everything I know and to learn with him the rest.


I am in love with the smell of the earth, the touch of the sun, the taste of berries, the sight of humanity, the sound of the wind, and the feeling of being truly alive.

I've been traveling for a long time, it's in my blood. My soul is content and at peace but also very excitable. I am always learning new skills, so if you have something to teach, I really love to learn. There are so many things I want to do... and I'm so excited about ALL of them. It's like a brimming, can't breathe, scrunched face type of excited.

I am building a house for my son and myself. It's a tiny house on wheels. I am also starting up a tiny house community for several tiny houses to communally live and enjoy organic gardening and an orchard. Everything is in the very beginning phase, but if you'd like to check it out you are welcome.

RIGHT NOW, I'm taking a break from a summer's hard work at the homestead and hoping back into traveling.

I am a single mother to my son, Nico. He is 2 years old and enjoys being outside running around. He's a little bit of a monster, but mostly a good kid. People always seem to remember him more than me- ha! We have been either hosting travelers or staying with hosts his entire life. He is quite used to the idea of strangers and new friends.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Everything that is mine is yours.

I have hosted, surfed, and traveled with others for over 7 years. Now that my son is here, I'd like him to grow up with the same openness and sharing CSing has allowed me to develop.


I have visited over 70% of the couch surfers in their local cities that I hosted in NYC. That's what makes couchsurfing so beautiful... it's not just a cheap way to travel, it's about making lasting friendships between people that normally would never know each other.


I am interested in everything.

Creative Writing
Figure skating
Acro Swing dancing
Web design
Video Editing
Car repair
BICYCLES (maybe more than anything.)
Attachment Parenting

…So, yes, really anything. Everything that interests you, will interest me. Guaranteed. Teach me something!

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything that brings me joy or encourages me think deeply.

Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
Manalive by G. K. Chesterton

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've updated my profile since then... but this was what I said as a 19 year old.

"Travelled to the opposite side of the world with people I met online.
Break danced with a homeless man without a word of verbal communication
Ran from Cambodian cops
Moved to a different state on 24 hour notice
Finger painted shirtless people at a black light party
Didn't have physical contact for the 1st week of my life
Helped birth a crocodile
Wore a school uniform for a whole year to a school that didn't have a uniform requirement
Been deathly wrong
Went to a highschool prom when I was in college
Changed my name over 20 times
Died my hair every colour of the rainbow
Shaved my head
Showed up to surprise a friend in a foreign country without notice
Accidently lived in a country illegally"

Teach, Learn, Share

Oh man! If you have a skill you can teach me while you are here, PLEASE do. I actually really want to learn whatever it is.

As I mentioned before, I'm building a tiny house right now. If you'd like to come out and help (or learn how to!) I would be more than grateful.
