About Me

I revel in random interactions with strangers or new people. I also enjoy outdoor activities (hiking, biking, slacklining, skiing, etc.), laughter meditation, bad jokes & puns, good food, live music, tea, travel, {salsa} dancing and photography. I have worked as a camp counselor, a barista, a pedicab driver, a juice maker, a nonprofitier, and more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I thrive on interactions with strangers and this movement facilitates that oh so wonderfully :) Let's make the world feel a little smaller.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you say "beer can" in a british accent, it sounds like you are saying "bacon" in a jamaican accent. So there's that...
